Posted by The Tenth Co on

Meet your gut & skin soothing new best friend. If you are always wondering what to make for dinner? That is easy, delicious and healthy - this is it.

This recipe is perfect for when you have a lot on, feeling stressed, whether you are in the fog of postpartum or generally feeling sleep deprived, have no time to think about eating well, and everything is a lot. We got You. You want to save this.

One way to help combat the negative effects of stress is by consuming bone broth soup. Using bone broth based soups for a few days can help calm gut inflammation, support your immune system, soothe digestion and speed up healing, you will feel the difference giving your body a bit of a break by digesting slow cooked foods.

Bone broth is not only delicious but also packed with numerous health benefits. This bone broth soup is especially beneficial to help recover in postpartum; the great thing is anyone can benefit from this soup, this soup is delicious and a time saver + good for your skin ✔️

Here are just a few more reasons why you should incorporate bone broth into your diet:

1. Supports Gut Health: The gelatin and collagen found in bone broth help to repair and seal the gut lining, promoting a healthy digestive system.

2. Boosts Immunity: Bone broth is rich in minerals and amino acids that support a strong immune system, helping you fight off infections and illnesses.

3. Promotes Healthy Skin: The collagen in bone broth can improve the elasticity and appearance of your skin, reducing the signs of aging. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to your skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments. 

We have this soup on a permanent rotation in our family, and it's a great way to get the kids to eat more veggies too (and us too), as they can't taste the amount of different vegetables that are in this soup, which is always a win!

The best thing is it’s easy to make and you can make a big batch, so you can heat it up over the week. Worth mentioning, this is a great gift to pre-make for a friend who had a baby, as it makes a wonderful nourishment for her postpartum recovery, plus helps the family in those early days not having to think about dinner - they will love you for it.



How to Make Bone Broth Soup that is simple and delicious


500ml slow cooked organic bone broth
500g organic chicken thigh
🥬 ½ cup chopped celery
🥕 ½ cup chopped carrots
🎃 Pumpkin (we normally use 1/2-1 whole pumpkin)
🥦 Broccoli (but only the heads - makes it much easier on the tummy)
🥬 Book choy/Zucchini
2-3cm Fresh Ginger (if kids eating it I leave it in bigger chunks, so you can take it out from their plates - as they might find it a lil zingy for them if they bite into it or chop it super teeny tiny)
🍃 4-5 Kefir Lime leaves (this is the secret ingredient)


1️⃣ Place your chicken with the broth and ginger + seasonings in a large soup pot or slow cooker, while you chop up the veggies.

2️⃣ Fill the slow cooker or pot with all the veggies to the top (leave about 3cm from the top)

3️⃣ Then add water until it covers it all about 3cm from the top and cover with a lid.

4️⃣ If cooking over the stove, bring the pot to a boil over medium high-heat, reduce the heat, and let simmer between 12-24 hours. If cooking in a slow cooker, set it to LOW and let cook for 12-24 hours. if you are like, that is a long time, you can buy slow cooked broth pre-made (our fave brand is Good Bones, you can these days find it at Woolworths) and cook it for 3-4 hours with the pre-made slow cooked broth, and it's just as delicious and the chicken still super tender. 

One thing to note: if you or anyone you are cooking for suffer from high histamine (they suffer from hay fever or allergies etc) you want to cook it for less, the longer you cook the more histamine will be released. My son suffer from high histamine so I cook mine these days for 3-4 hours. Super delicious still and nutritious.

5️⃣ Once cooked, let it cool, and store in glass containers in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    Remember, bone broth soup is not only delicious but also incredibly versatile. Feel free to add your favorite vegetables, herbs, and spices to customise the flavor to your liking. So go ahead, nourish your body, gut, and skin with a comforting bowl of homemade bone broth soup!


      Incorporating bone broth soup into your diet is a simple and effective way to nourish your body, improve your gut health, and enhance your skin. Whether you're a new mother looking to support your postpartum recovery or simply want to boost your overall well-being, bone broth soup is a great addition to your weekly meal rotation.
