As you get older, your body produces less and less collagen. This leaves you with wrinkles, saggy skin, and a weakened immune system.
You can reverse this process by consuming more collagen in your diet! If you’re like most people, the idea of eating something called “collagen” sounds gross – but we promise it’s delicious! Our recipe for Collagen Soup is easy to make and absolutely delicious. It will be one of the best soups that you’ve ever eaten (and it’s good for you)!
We’ve included our favorite recipe below – don’t forget to add some fresh herbs from the garden if they are available. Enjoy!
- 2 large pork bones (rinsed)
- 2 rinsed chicken carcasses 20 rinsed chicken feet 200 g raw peanuts
- 5 liters of water, salted to taste (Optional)
Step 1. Make the peanut butter.
Soak peanuts overnight or at least 5 hours before you start your cooking process to get rid of any skin that may be on them, then rinse thoroughly in cold water until they are clear for this recipe’s instructions about preparing meat ingredients which includes parboiling pork bones and chicken carcass with 3-5 minutes each time depending upon how big your pot is – drained again after use!
Step 2: Prepare the meat ingredients by parboiling them.
A large pot of water should be heated. Pork bones, chicken carcass, and chicken feet should all be added. 3–5 minutes of parboiling Drain the water and give the ingredients a good rinse under the tap.
Step 3: Prepare the stock and store it
Add pork bone, chicken carcass, chicken feet, and peanuts to a stock pot. Allow 10 minutes for it to boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook the soup for 4 hours.
Remove the bones from the broth and strain it twice to remove any remaining impurities. Pour it into a heatproof container or bowl and set it aside to cool. Remove any fat layer and refrigerate the broth. The estimated amount of stock is 1.5 to 2 liters.
The soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also store it in the freezer for up to a month.
Step 4: Melt the collagen and use it to make a steamboat.
Place the collagen jelly in the hotpot after slicing it. When the collagen jelly is heated, it will slowly melt into a liquid. Season with a pinch of salt, a splash of chicken stock concentrate, and a drizzle of sesame oil. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and serve.
