How to make Vegetable Broth
My Mom, being the awesome Mom she is, sent along her instructions, with a couple of pictures, on how she makes homemade vegetable broth!
The broth is perfect for soups, stews, rice dishes, Risotto, and pasta sauces!
Want to know how to make vegetable broth? Read on…
There are a ton of vegetable scraps that can be salvaged for broth:
- carrot peelings
- broccoli, mushroom pieces, celery, peppers, onions
- Herb stems
- Pretty much anything if it isn’t rotten!
Here are some tips to prepare your scraps:
- Scrub your vegetables before peeling
- Place all your scraps/peelings into a freezer bag or container
- Keep adding to the bag/container until you have enough to make the broth (about 4-6 cups worth)
Vegetable Broth Method:
- Place the peels to a stock pot, add enough water to cover completely, then add ground pepper, bay leaf and a garlic clove.
- Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 hour.
- Cool the broth, then strain and discard (compost) the solids.
- Pour broth into containers and refrigerate or freeze for up to 3 months.
Here we are, five days into the new year. How are your resolutions or goals going so far?
Still trying to save money, eat healthier and be more organized?
I think the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle is a tool that will help you knock out all three resolutions :-).
I’m especially loving the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker ebooks. Since I’ve recently gotten over my fear of blowing the house up with my Instant Pot, many of the recipes have been added to my menu plan! The bundle just has so many great nuggets. Everything from Budget meals to freezer cooking to gluten-free to vegan. I’ll be referencing this all the time if the last week since I’ve purchased it is any indication.
But the sale ends tonight…
The beauty of this bundle is that you can choose the mini-bundle of meal plans and recipes that matches the way your family eats.
-OR- you can get the best value by picking up the entire bundle of ALL the meal plans and recipes for just $20 more (a discount of 96%!!!).
But don’t take too long to decide. Check it out here. This massive discount expires at midnight tonight!
P.S. Still feeling unsure? I love their 30-day happiness guarantee. Their customer service is great, and it means there’s really no risk in trying it out. ?

What if there was just one thing standing between you, a lower grocery bill and a healthier life?
I know it seems hard to believe but hear me out…
Healthy meals don’t just happen. (Wouldn’t that be nice!) You have to decide what you’re eating, make your list, buy the ingredients, and then prepare everything. And the domino that starts it all is knowing what you’re going to eat.
In other words, the path to a lower grocery bill and health begins with a plan.
Starting today, you can get your hands on ready-made meal plans for just the way you eat – complete with shopping lists and fresh recipes – for a ridiculously low price.
It’s called the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle and here’s how it works:
It’s a complete meal planning solution made up of 10 mini-bundles.
Each bundle contains digital cookbooks, fresh meal ideas, and ready-made plans (and even grocery lists!). No matter how you eat, there’s a mini-bundle that’s perfect for you and there are two buying options:
Option 1: Pick up just one mini-bundle that works best for your life right now – quick & healthy, budget-friendly, Instant Pot & slow cooker OR diet-specific options like vegan, real food, paleo, keto, gluten-free… there’s one that’s right for you.
Option 2: For less than the price of two mini-bundles, get the ENTIRE package with over 3,000 recipes and 100 weeks of made-for-you meal plans, so you’ve got total control no matter how your food needs change.
You really can start saving money and get healthier, starting today.
Make those dominos fall and start your New Year right by picking up your copy of the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle (or any of the mini-bundles) right here.
