The founders of the Bare Bones Broth Company not only know how to name a broth company like nobody's business; they brew up a pot of hearty goodness that will cure what ails you and just launched a cookbook. This simple clear soup has never been trendier, and despite what you may have heard, it doesn't have to involve bones. Break out some onions, garlic, scallions, leeks and shallots and prepare to sip on something wonderfully fragrant.
