Making Vegetable Broth

This week I tried my hand at making vegetable broth!

via GIPHY

I’m not a big fan of tomato based vegetable broths so when I found a blog about saving your vegetable scraps to make your own broth I thought it was worth a try. Being a vegetarian it didn’t take long for the scraps to add up. I kept them in the freezer and just added to the bag as I was cooking.

In the scraps, there were onion peels, the inside of peppers, the ends and middle of garlic cloves, dill stems, celery, parsley, thyme and rosemary stems, Jalapeno gits, Bok Choy ends. Pretty Much anything I used in the kitchen. I wrapped the frozen lump of vegetable into cheesecloth and boiled them.

I read somewhere for the best flavour to boil for an hour. Which I did and I simmered for a couple hours. I also ended up adding salt…Because I’m a salt junky.

While boiling the stock I also multi-tasked and boiled my jars and lids. Sterilize, Sterilize, Sterilize. As you can see I’m a huge supporter of Classico because you can reuse their jars. However, you have to be sure they seal. I have had lids that the rubber melts off.

 

Setting everything aside that was sterilized I didn’t realise exactly how much broth I boiled so I ended up having to do a couple rounds of jar sterilization to keep up.

As the broth became ready I also got the lids ready to seal. Remember to stir to let the bubbles out and wipe the top of the jars to make the seal.

With both elements going it got quite warm in the kitchen. It of course only got worse when I added the pressure canner.

The pot I made the broth in after jarring was then washed out and became the pot that I pressure canned in. I filled it with various different sizes of jars. I cooked at 15 pounds (Im sure I could have done 10) for 30 minutes.

I ended up cooking 4 batches. In between, I stored all of the broth in the jars in my kitchen sink in hot water. Sometimes if the liquid gets cold the jars will shatter in the pressure cooker.

It took me a few days to complete. The broth turned out delicious. My house smells great and I have enough broth to last me for a year!

5-Minute Vegan Sauces


The BEST 5-Minute Vegan Sauces! Simple, delicious, and perfect for dipping.

 

Are you looking for Vegan Sauces? Here are some delicious ideas!

SPICY HUMMUS
prep time: 
cook time: 
total time: 
serves: 4 servings
 TThis spicy hummus is topped with crushed red pepper, feta cheese, and olive oil. A healthy, easy snack with crackers or veggies!
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs. tahini
  • 1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • cayenne to taste (I would start small with a ¼ teaspoon)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Put chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne in a food processor. Process until thick paste forms.
  2. Add the oil (streaming it in while the food processor is running seems to work best) and continue to add 1 tbs. of water at a time, until the consistency smooth and spreadable.
  3. Sprinkle extra cayenne on top for more spice, and feta to cool things down!
NUTRITION INFORMATION
Calories: 203
 A quick word about tahini: it’s sesame paste. You can buy it at Cub or other run-of-the-mill grocery stores (just ask a knowledgeable salesperson to help you find it). It costs about 5-10$ for a jar, and the jar will last you for many batches of hummus. If you don’t have it and don’t want to buy it, use peanut butter or omit it altogether.

5-minute magic green sauce

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup packed parsley and cilantro leaves (combined)
  • 1 jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of one lime (or two – get lots of limey goodness in there!)
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pistachios (you can sub other nuts – see notes)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pulse all ingredients – except pistachios – in a food processor until incorporated.
  2. Add pistachios and pulse until mostly smooth (depends on what consistency you want).
  3. Serve as a dip, spread, or sauce — or add additional water or oil to thin the sauce for use as a dressing or a marinade.
NOTES
I did make this with other types of nuts like walnuts and almonds and it worked just fine, but the taste wasn’t as good IMHO. If you can find shelled pistachios, it’s worth the splurge!

Nutrition Magic Green Sauce

5 minute kale pesto

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups torn kale (no stems) and parsley, combined
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of one lemon
  • ¼ to ½ cup raw almonds
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pulse the kale, oilve oil, salt, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Add the almonds and pulse until the almonds are ground to desired consistency.
  3. Serve with pizza, pasta, crackers, eggs, salads, soup, sandwiches, etc.
NOTES

I ended up using about 1½ cups kale + ½ cup parsley. But I’ve made this many times with just about any combination of greens, whether JUST kale, kale and spinach, kale and other herbs… it is a very flexible recipe so adjust the ingredients and quantities depending on what you have on hand. A traditional pesto flavor profile would include basil, but when I made it with basil, I didn’t really love it. Go figure. Just make it however you like is what I’m saying here.

If you don’t want this to be vegan, no probs. Just add a handful of Parmesan into the mix and YUM.

Also really really really delicious = using spicy almonds. I just bought some from a co-op that were already seasoned and spiced and used them in place of the raw almonds.

Kristen’s Cultures



Nature’s Best Market is now carrying Kristen’s Cultures’ spicy Kombucha Mustard!

And they have samples. 😋

‘prō·bī·ô·tics:
friendly, gut-healing bacteria and yeast which:
-fight off the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast
-promote a healthy digestive system
-strengthen the immune system
-heal the gut by restoring gut flora (especially important after taking antibiotics!)

-detoxify your body, ridding it of toxins
-prevent and treat diseases

Fermented foods/drinks are superior to probiotic pills because they:

-cost less: generally, 1-2 bites/sips contain as many probiotics as a whole pill

-are more easily assimilated into your body because of their Real Food form

-contain plenty of vitamins, enzymes and healing acids as well as probiotics

Did you know that your body actually contains more bacterial cells than it does human cells?  Amazing!

Your gut contains about 3lb of bacterial cells, all of which are extremely important to your body’s overall physical, mental and emotional well-being!

According to Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.”

You need tons of probiotics to keep your immune system strong and able to fight off intruders, especially after taking antibiotics (which kill the good along with the bad).

Not only do probiotics balance out your gut, but they also help to detoxify your body, getting rid of toxins that have built up over the years, and help you to heal from various ailments with their amazing enzymes, healing acids and food-based vitamins.

Fermented foods/drinks are not only a delicious way to get probiotics into your body, but they are also cheaper and more readily assimilated into your body than probiotic pills are, because of their Real Food form.

Fermented foods/drinks are superior to probiotic pills because they:

-cost less: generally, 1-2 bites/sips contain as many probiotics as a whole pill

-are more easily assimilated into your body because of their Real Food form

-contain plenty of vitamins, enzymes and healing acids as well as probiotics

🍔 This is a simple, delicious way to incorporate important probiotics into your diet! Spread this old-style dijon on to your sandwich, burger, or pair with meat/fish. 🥪

Not only will your taste buds fall in love, but because your gut health affects your overall health, this mustard will help your immune system, digestion and much more. (Check out my website and Google to learn about the amazing benefits of probiotics.)
