5 Easy & Nutritious Ways to Use Bone Broth Powder

Bone broth is a nutritious and versatile liquid made by simmering animal bones, vegetables, herbs, and spices. It's rich in nutrients and can be used in a variety of delicious ways.
Here are five easy ways to use bone broth:

Soup Base

One of the most common uses for bone broth powder is as a flavourful base for soups and stews, to replace stocks. It adds a depth, richness, and vital nutrients to cooking. It can be easily incorporated into any flavour, be it vegetable, chicken or beef soup.


Many people enjoy sipping warm bone broth like a comforting beverage, particularly in the cooler months or between seasons. It's a soothing way hydrate your body as well as gain essential nutrients, you can even add some herbs or a squeeze of lemon. Nutraviva’s bone broth powder range is perfect for sipping, it only requires hot water and in no time at all you can be enjoying a delicious warming bone broth.

Cooking Grains

Use bone broth instead of water when cooking grains like rice, quinoa, or couscous. It imparts a wonderful depth of flavour to the grains, making them even more delicious and nutritious. It can be easily added into family recipe  favourites such as risotto and paella.

Sauces and Gravies

Bone broth can be used as a base for sauces and gravies to enhance their flavour and nutritional content. It works very well in making pan sauces for roasted meats or as a base for gravy to accompany mashed potatoes. I even add bone broth into my potato bakes and it is a hit with our family and friends.

Braising and Slow Cooking

When braising meats or cooking them in a slow cooker, using bone broth instead of water or regular stock can greatly enhance the flavour and tenderness of the meat. The collagen in the bone broth can help create a rich, silky texture in the braising liquid. Simply add a few serves of bone broth powder to your slow cooked shanks, beef ribs and brisket.

Bonus way to use bone broth - Smoothies & Drinks

This option is a little bit out the box! While certainly a less traditional way of using bone broth, you can also incorporate bone broth into smoothies or other beverages. This can be a creative way to boost the nutritional value of your drinks and add a unique flavour profile. However, this option really is better applied when using our Pure Bone Broth or Collagen Enriched Bone Broth as a savoury flavoured bone broth will be unpalatable! (Or an acquired taste in the least).
