DS used to love rice and chicken. I used to cooked the rice in a broth made with a couple of teaspoons of organic better than bouillon base. It was his favorite meal.<br>
Well, since I have started cooking my own bone broths, he won't touch his rice. As a matter of fact he screams I cook it. I think it is because it has such a strong flavor. I simmer it for about 10 hours. I'm just wondering if it would be better if I simmered it for less time. I want to make the flavor less intense. Any suggestions?<br>
Thanks!

I'm not sure about simmering less. However, you could cut the bone broth you do use when you make the rice. Use part broth and part water. I usually do this because DH doesn't like the rice that rich, either. Yeah, you're not getting as much goodness in as you could, but I figure any I get into us is better than none.

Why don't you hide the bone broth/stock in things like stew or roasted potatoes? I had a good laugh the other night when I was watching Sally Fallon's DVD and she spoke about the war to hide the good stuff in the childrens' food.

DH doesn't care for broth, either. He dosn't like broth-y soups, but actually likes blended soups...because the broth gets blended into a puree with the veggies. Our favorites are the pea, winter-root veggie, roman lentil, black bean and cream of vegetable soup recipes in NT. The secret is blending it really well and adding lots of creme fraiche so the soup is creamy. MMmm. He also dosn't mind broth in stews and chili as long as it is thick and stew-y, not soupy.<br><br>
I will admit that even I am not too fond of brown rice or quinoa cooked in bone broth. But I just made wild rice tonight for the first time in ages, and cooked it in bone broth- and it was delish! I plan on making this much more often. Don't know if your ds likes wild rice but it might be worth a try.

Thanks for the advice, I will give all these a try. It is so frustrating when your dc don't eat something that is so good for them! He has allergies and I know bone broth would make him feel so much better.
