Freestyle Vegetable Broth ( Original Recipe)
With winter fast approaching, it's that time of year, broth time! It's empowering to make your own from scratch and its much simpler than one would think. I decided to make things interesting by adding some bok choy and shiitake mushrooms, golden beets, and cayenne pepper. I named this recipe Freestyle Vegetable Broth because anything goes, think of the ingredients as a guideline.
Freestyle Vegetable Broth-
1 large carrot
3 pieces of bok choy
a bunch of parsley
2 large parsnips
1/2 of a golden beet
6 pieces of celery
3 shiitake mushrooms
a piece of lime rind
2 cloves of garlic
3 pieces of ginger
a dash of cayenne pepper
1) Fill a large pot with water and set to boil on medium heat
2) Chop and clean all vegetables
3) When water is hot, you know when you start to see steam rising, add vegetables. Then switch to low heat.
4) Let vegetables cook until soft, this should take about 1.5- 2 hrs. It takes time, but it's worth it.
Have fun and be creative, and the results will surprise you.
