Recipe: Veggie Broth

Are you sick of playing around on Pinterest and want to actually be productive? Are you feeling really ambitious and in the mood to use a recipe to create an ingredient for another recipe?? Do you want to twirl around the kitchen and pretend you are Julia Child???? Do you want to make your whole home smell like Thanksgiving???!!! Yeah I knew that one would work. It's been what, three weeks?

Let's make some homemade veggie broth. :)

Add 1 tbsp oil to pot, set on medium heat

Chop and add one at a time: 2 whole onions, 5 stalks of celery, and 4 carrots*

Add 1 bay leaf, 10 peppercorns, and 3 cloves of garlic

Add any other veggies in your fridge that you wanna get rid of

Stir and let cook for a few minutes on medium heat, then add 1 gallon of water

Turn up the heat and wait for it to start boiling

Turn down the heat a little bit and let it do it's thing for an hour

Add 2 tsp salt and 1/4 cup of Tamari; let simmer another 20 mins

Strain through a strainer into a pitcher

Now, you are done!

It will last a week in the fridge. Freeze into ice cubes for later use.

*mirepoix (pronounced "meer-pwah")- the combination of three aromatics: celery, carrots and onion, often used in French cuisine

(Don't you feel so cultured now? "Meer-pwah.")
