Homemade vegetable broth without chemicals: This is the best way to prepare it! 
INGREDIENTS:
3 Carrots
1 Leek
2 Parsnips
2 Root Parsley
1 Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Kohlrabi
1/2 Celery stalk and its leaves
1 Turmeric root 
A Handful of Parsley
80 Grams of Salt
Pepper or peppercorns to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • First, wash the vegetables well. You don’t want to simmer any dirt or sand in your stock!
  • Next, chop them. The shape isn’t important – you just need to break them down enough so that they fit neatly in your pot.
  • Then, simmer. Add the vegetables to a large pot with the salt, bay leaves, and peppercorns. Add 10-12 cups of water and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
  • Finally, strain the stock through a fine mesh strainer to remove the vegetables and peppercorns.

Freeze dry according to machine instructions. This recipe is great to adjust based on your favorite veggies or scraps on hand. Here are a few other suggestions:

 

  • leek tops,
  • fennel fronds,
  • carrot tops,
  • herb stems,
  • corn cobs,
  • mushroom stems,
  • scallion roots or tops,
  • onion skins and ends,
  • and garlic skins and ends.
  •  

    Avoid cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage as it can make the broth bitter.
