Working in collaboration with local makers is one of the things I enjoy most. Here in Edmonton we’re blessed to have such a thriving community of healthy makers & shakers who create wonderful products. Bo & Marrow is just one of them.
I got the chance to try out their broths a few months ago and then we decided to come together to make a delicious recipe that really highlighted the gut healing properties of their bone broth. Now, I’m all for sipping it just the way it is, but there’s something about using it as a base for pilaf that makes my world go round.
I’ve also included loads of seasonal veggies and some spices like turmeric which reduce inflammation in the body. All in all, this is a seriously soothing bowl of goodness worthy of any fitness warrior.

10 MINS PREP + 20 MINS COOK
- Start by cooking your grains in a medium pot until all water is gone ( ½ C of grains for 1 C water).
- Heat oil in a second pot over medium-high heat, using a large pot here is best.
- Add the onion, garlic, celery, cabbage and broccoli and cook for 5 - 6 minutes.
- Add the salt, pepper flakes, turmeric, and cumin and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
- Deglaze with apple cider vinegar & lime juice, then add the broth and bring to a boil.
- Once boiling add the cooked grains.
- Simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes for all the flavors to come together
- Serve immediately with chopped parsley, or let it cool completely and freeze for later!
Note: This makes a very thick bowl with lots of veggies in it, to stretch it you can always add a second pouch of broth!
