I just bought some Chicken Bone Broth with Lemongrass and Ginger at Whole Foods Market. The company, Kettle & Fire makes the broth in different flavors. I just heated it up to go with dinner and added a bit of Braggs Liquid Amino in it and I'm sold. It was so delicious. The other two flavors were Mushroom Chicken and Turmeric Ginger, Today I'm featuring MUSHROOM BEAN AND BARLEY SOUP WITH MUSHROOM CHICKEN BONE BROTH. You can make it Vegan or Vegetarian if you wish using Vegetable Broth. Bone Broth has so many nutrients to include iron, protein, Vitamins A and K, and so important in supporting the connective tissues of the body. The taste has a richer flavor than regular chicken broth. Try it. Let me know what you think. The temperature tomorrow night is going down in the upper 40's and only mid 60's on Tuesday. What better time for a hot bowl of soup.
