Make a delicious vegetable broth that keeps all of the nutrients right in the mix with this super easy method.
– Carrots – Celery – Onion – Garlic – Water You can also season this with salt and pepper to taste, as you like, add tomato paste, parsley leaves, or ginger.
Wash all the vegetables. Peel the garlic. Chop into pieces. Add to a large pot with the water and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the vegetables are very, very soft. Poke with a knife and make sure it comes out cleanly.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the vegetables to a blender with 1 cup of the liquid. Blend smooth. Return to the pot and stir.
If you want to lighten the color or make this go farther, you can add 1-2 cups additional water. You can also mix with chicken broth.
Use in soups, Pastina, or store for future use. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
You can also transfer to an ice cube tray or a freezer bag and freeze for up to 6 months. Use an ice cube of the broth to add directly to a bowl of pasta or rice to add flavor and cool the food.
