sipping bone broth, I decided to cook with my Organic Bone Broth from Pacific Foods* instead. I thought about dishes where the broth is a prominent part...not just an ingredient. The two I came up with: soup and risotto. But, as it is the warmest part of our summer, soup was out. I decided to make a simple risotto. And, wanting the flavor of the bone broth to shine, I didn't use anything else that would really overwhelm the flavors; I opted for a carrot, celery, onion, and pancetta risotto. Easy peasy!
Ingredients makes 8 servings
- 1 onion, peeled and diced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 2 T butter
- splash of olive oil
- 3 C arborio rice
- 6 C organic bone broth
- 2 C boiling water
- 8 oz marscarpone cream
- fleur de sel
- freshly ground pepper
Add one ladle of simmering broth at a time, stirring, stirring, and stirring some more till the liquid is absorbed. Repeat until the rice is soft. If you need more liquid, just add more; if you don't use all of the stock, that's okay, too.
Let stand for 5 minutes. Season with fleur de sel and pepper to taste. Stir in marscarpone cheese. To serve, spoon out individual servings. Serve immediately.
I love their stated philosophy: "We’ve always believed that nature's work needs little refinement. That’s why we stick with just a few simple ingredients in our recipes, showcasing each ingredient’s true flavor and inherent nutrition."
They certify to the source. They are GMO-free. They are organic. And they are sourced locally whenever possible. That's how all food companies should be.
I was really impressed with how aromatic Pacific Food's organic bone broth was. Most of the time I don't buy things in packages because I can make it better. I can honestly say that this broth was outstanding; I would buy it! Or...I'll hold it as the gold standard and try to make a bone broth that tastes just as good.
