Vegetable Broth

Broths available in stores are often high in sodium, can contain some unnecessary ingredients, and the packaging they are store in might not be the healthiest option either.

Today I am coming to you with a great alternative for store bought vegetable broths that you can make at home with no need of any fancy equipment (although if you have an Instant Pot, it might come handy).

All you need is:
– 1 onion
– 1 celery stalk
– 1 potato
– 1 carrot
– 1 cup mushrooms
– 5 cups water
– 1 garlic glove
– 2 sprigs fresh thyme
– 1 bay leaf
– pepper and salt

Cut all the veggies into small cubes. Put all the ingredients into a big pot and bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.

If you are using Instant Pot set the pressure to high and time to 15 minutes.

Strain and discard solids. Ready broth store in glass jar, it will last for about a week in your fridge. You can also freeze it, either in a freezer safe container or in ice-cube trays. That option is really convenient! No more store bought broth!
