TNW × Bo And Marrow: Fall Bone Broth & Turmeric Soup

simple fall soup featuring ancient grains, quinoa, bone broth & turmeric.

If you know anything about me at all you know I'm a huge fan of local farmer's markets. I LOVE them for all the obvious reasons (fresh veg, mindful atmosphere, local products) but beyond that, I love them because they allow me to put a face to the products I consume.

Connecting, face to face, with other people has become so foreign to me in the past few years that when I am greeted with a warm welcome from someone I barely know, it leaves a deep loving impression.

Diane of Bo & Marrow left such an impression on me this year. She barely knew me, but we were following each other on Instagram before we managed to get connected face to face at City Market (downtown Edmonton) this season. She was all smiles, warm hugs & cheerfully chatty. On my end, being my introverted self, I fell head over heals. Hah. Major girl crush.

We got to talking & I asked her what her product was all about. She explained that it was a labour of love she was creating from the ground up with her lovely man. Together, they source, chop, boil down a bunch of different bone broths. They then pouch them up in perfectly sippable packages and sell them through markets and their websites.

Take it from a girl who makes her own chicken feet stock, it's a lot of work!

These guys blew me out of the water with the varieties they offer. So we discussed working together on a recipe that would feature one of their delish broths.

I collected a mixture of veggies from my own garden & tossed in a few from Riverbend Gardens for good measure. Before I knew it, I had a soul soothing recipe on the table. 

If you leave the recipe in the fridge overnight, the grains will soak of any remaining stock which makes it perfectly packable for next-day lunch. Hello bonus!
