Bone Broth Rice

You are missing something special if you haven't cook your rice with bone broth! Bone broth will add high-quality proteins to your rice.

You are missing something special if you haven’t cooked your rice with bone broth! Please do yourself a favor and go and cook it this way. For the real friend, besides the rice’s flavor, we are talking about a vast nutritional difference between cooking rice in water and cooking it with bone broth. Bone broth will add high-quality proteins to your rice (hello collagen), fantastic flavor, and minerals. 

Rice can be part of a healthy diet, even if it is a grain because it’s probably the lowest toxic grain out there. If you follow an animal-based diet and want to include a little rice pre and post-workout, here’s a recipe for you!

How is bone broth different from stock? 

It’s pretty similar–they’re made from meaty bones and veggies cooked together to make a flavorful broth. Bone broth, though, cooks much longer to extract more nutrients and marrow from the bones. And before simmering on the stove, the bones (plus meat) are slow-roasted in the oven to speed up that process. The result is a more concentrated flavor fortified with maximum nutrients, including unique collagen!

Bone Broth Rice Is…

  1. Super-healthy: Bone broth is high in protein and collagen.
  2. Richly flavorful: The broth deepens the rice’s flavor profile.
  3. Simple: Few ingredients and easy to prepare.
  4. Versatile: It goes well with so many dishes.
  5. Meal-prep friendly: Ideal for batch cooking and storage.

Bone broth ingredients:

  • Bone broth: Choose high-quality for better flavor and nutritional benefits. Or make your own.
  • Water: Use filtered water, if possible, for purity.
  • Rice: We like using basmati rice for this recipe.
  • Salt: To enhance the flavor.

How to make it

  • Combine rice, bone broth, and water in a saucepan; heat medium-high without a lid.
  • Wait for a simmer with bubbling around the edges.
  • Cover tightly, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook.
  • Check water absorption by tilting the pan; reseal immediately.
  • Rest off heat, lid on, for 5-10 minutes.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve.
