This Sounds Too Simple…

Well, as you know, I get revved up about healthy ideas.

If you’re reading this, you likely do too.

So, here’s an idea that at first seems way too simple.

The idea is to make your own veggie broth.

You know the kind you pay almost $4 in the store.

Well, it’s so simple to make your own.

Look, I have been making chicken broth for years, but I have never made veggie broth.

The two broths are completely different, but of course, veggie broth is much easier to make!

Anyway, I was inspired to make my own veggie broth after reading how important it is in the spring to get tons of veggies into the system.

And so I got some ideas for preparing it.

So easy, take a look…

Here’s how to do it!

1. All you need is the largest, heavy pot you have.
2. Then, place loosely cut veggies and cover it with water by a couple of inches or so.
3. Use veggies like celery, carrots, parsley, turnips, and other scraps you may have around but avoid a lot of strong veggies like beets, cabbage, or even asparagus
4. Then, simmer for at least two hours.

Optional: You can add a little salt, onion, and garlic (with skin) and any other spices you enjoy.

I simmered mine for over 4 hours yesterday since I was doing other things and had the time.

Last night, I used some to make rice.

Today I’ll use some to make my lentils.

You can replace plain water and use your homemade broth to so many things including mashed potatoes, rice, beans, etc.

You can even heat up a cup to drink in between meals as a healthy pick-me-up.

Imagine all the nutrients you get from simmering these nutrient-packed veggies all day.

Also, you save a lot of money by making your own broth and you also have a way to recycle your veggie scraps.

Sound good?

Reply and let me know if you will make this, okay?

 

Love always,
