Vegetable Broth

I have made a gallon of this broth every week for the past month. I use only organic vegetables and have found that the fresher they are, the more nourishing the broth tastes. It is an infusion of an alkaline, nutritious, electrolyte replenishing broth that is cancer-fighting, anti-inflammatory, and Yin supporting.

You can use it as a base for soups, stews, lentils, or just heat it up to hydrate on a cold day.

If you don’t have all of the ingredients, use whatever vegetables you have in your refrigerator but do not skimp on garlic, ginger and onions

I hope you love it as much as my family and I do.
