A good bone broth can take somewhere between 12 to 24 hours of simmer time. But sometimes, a quick simple veggie stock that can pull a back up to a bone broth is good to have on hand. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, then it’s essential. An organic store bought vegetable broth will run you about $2.50 a liter. Why not make your own? It takes minutes of hands on time (I’ll even show you how easy it really is) and the rest is just stove top time. Too easy!
This recipe makes 4 liters and with very few inexpensive ingredients you can stock your freezer and save yourself a few bucks while you’re at it. Not to mention, the health properties of homemade are always better than store bought.
I’ll also go over some quick and easy substitutions to turn your basic stock into one that is seasonally appropriate with a few switches in herbs or spices.
