Go to work.
Come home and make this:
GUT-HEALING VEGETABLE BROTH (AND WHY IT’S BETTER THAN BONE BROTH)
1 hour 5 mins
A nutritious, gut-healing broth as a vegan alternative to bone broth. If you don’t like or can’t find any ingredients, don’t worry. Add what flavours you like and try to get as much variety and nutritional goodness as you can!
12 cups (2¾ litres) filtered water
1 tbsp coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
1 red onion, quartered (with skins)
1 garlic bulb, smashed
1 chilli pepper, roughly chopped (with seeds)
1 knob ginger, roughly chopped (with skin)
1 cup greens such as kale or spinach
3-4 cup mixed chopped vegetables and peelings (I used carrot peelings, red cabbage, fresh mushrooms, leeks and celery)
½ cup dried shiitake mushrooms
30g dried wakame seaweed
1 tbsp peppercorns
2 tbsp ground turmeric
1 tbsp coconut aminos*
A bunch of fresh corriander or other herb of your choice (plus extra, to serve)
(optional) ¼ cup nutritional yeast, for extra flavour and vitamins
Simply add everything to a large pot. Bring to a boil then simmer, with the lid on, for about an hour.
Once everything has been cooked down, strain the liquid into a large bowl.
Serve immediately with some fresh herbs, for decoration or cool for later. It also freezes well.
