Here is another one of my favorite recipes for healing. It makes many vitamins and minerals readily available and easily absorbed. This broth is high in Potassium and has Iodine. Broths are easy on the stomach, readily absorbed and mineral broth is a great medium for also consuming your salt needs for proper hydration.
2 organic unpeeled whole carrots roughly cut
1 medium organic yellow onion roughly cut
1 bunch organic celery roughly cut
1 bunch organic parsley
2-4 cloves organic garlic, unpeeled and roughly cut in half
1 tsp whole organic peppercorns
1 organic leek roughly cut
2-3 organic garnet yam, red potato or sweet potato rinsed and roughly cut
1 strip of kombu (sea vegetable)
6-8 Q filtered water
Redmands sea salt or Herbamare (not optional...salt to taste when finished. Here is why)
1 large stockpot (minimum 6 Q size, but bigger is better to fit all the vegetables)
Rinse all vegetables and kombu. Roughly chop all vegetables. Place all ingredients except salt into the stockpot and cover with filtered water. Bring to a boil. Remove the lid and reduce to a simmer for 2-3 hours or until full flavor of the vegetables is smelled and tasted. Add the salt. Strain the stock through a large coarse strainer. Allow broth to come to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator or freezer. Can be stored in the freezer upto 6 mos. Can be stored in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Use for soups, drinking, sauces or traditional gluten-free grain preparations.
*Fiddle with the vegetable ingredients to your preference or food sensitivity needs and even seasonal availability. In the photo, I threw in broccoli stalks also because I had them available.
Remove. Replace. Restore.
Remove processed and refined foods.
Replace with healthy, vitamin and mineral rich nourishing broth.
Eat well. Move well. Sleep well. Thrive on.
