Blended Bone Broth


I've been enjoying snowy days snuggled up at home more than almost anything. Watching the snow fall while a good meal is simmering away may be my favorite thing in the entire world. Enter bone broth. Aside from the health benefits of bone broth (especially when veggies are involved) this recipe is absolutely delicious. The umami is on point and it is oh-so filling. 

We live just a mile from a local butcher, so when I need bones, that's where I look first. The owner recommended I do a mixture of beef bone and pigs foot and ohhhhh man was it a good combination. This recipe is veggie heavy and yields a deliciously flavorful and complex broth.
