Oxtail Soup - Super Healthy
This soup is not just awesome if you are sick, but is also prepared with low effort and gives the opportunity to freeze a lot of it and just heat it up on a lazy day. Maybe, with some extra vegetables or fast cooked meat thrown in.

Oxtail soup
Instructions
  1. Sear the oxtail and the bones with clarified butter in a big pot
  2. Pour hot water into the pot, until it is completely filled. Don't pour cold water into hot fat, it could start to burn!
  3. Let it simmer for at least 4-5 hours with the lid on. It is perfect when the meat and bone marrow separate from the bones on its own. Occasionally, pour new water into the pot until it is filled again.
  4. Cut vegetables, put them in and add the seasonings
  5. Let it simmer until the vegetables are done
Recipe Notes

This recipe works with any kind of meat. However, notice that it is important to use meat including bones, if you want the good, healthy stuff like collagen and minerals. These dissolve in the soup/broth after a few hours of cooking.

Coalfish & Fatty Vegetable Puree
This easily prepared high fat meal is pretty saturating. The fish delivers very healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The vegetable puree, by containing a mass of nutritious fats, fills your stomach and keeps you saturated for a long time. In addition, it works as a really nice substitute for mashed potatoes.
