Nourishing Bone Stock, Beans and Collard Greens Stew

With millions of people suffering with bone diseases like osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and other debilitating conditions, our bones need help. Interestingly, it’s well documented in modern medical science that when someone has kidney disease, they often suffer with high rates of bone disease. Kidney health is essential to bone health!

If you want to truly nourish your bones, I’d highly recommend you ditch the supplements and get into your kitchen to cook up some traditional bone building foods like this Nourishing Bone Stock, Beans and Collard Greens Stew – your bones will thank you for it! You’ll need:

  • 4-6 ounces, cured ham with fat and/or skin, diced (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. organic olive oil or other fat
  • 1 large onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp. Real sea salt
  • 2 medium sized carrots, cut into 1/2 inch rounds
  • 2 red potatoes with skin, diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp. fresh rosemary
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or other stock)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 & 1/2 cups white beans (cooked)
  • 2-3 collard green leaves, sliced thin

In a soup pot, sauté ham until fat releases. Add onion, pinch of sea salt and olive oil. Sauté on medium heat 2-3 minutes. Add remaining sea salt, carrots, potatoes, rosemary, thyme and black pepper. Continue sautéing 3-4 minutes. Add stock and bay leaves, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook 15 minutes. Add beans and collard greens into the pot. Cover and cook 7-10 minutes. Adjust seasoning if needed.
