This easy homemade vegetable broth is so versatile where you can add veggies of your choice to add amazing flavour. Let me show you just how easy it is to make.
MAKING THE EASY HOMEMADE VEGETABLE BROTH
My favorite combination of vegetables for making this broth is carrots, celery, onions, garlic and herbs such as coriander and thyme.
But feel free to add vegetables like mushrooms, peppers and turnips or herbs like sage, basil or oregano to flavour your broth as well.
Whole black peppercorns and salt is added to taste.
Chop the vegetables which you are using and toss into a blender with the herb, salt and peppercorns or ground black pepper.
Cover with hot water from the kettle and leave for 5 minutes. This helps the vegetables soften and flavours begin to fuse.
After 5 minutes, cover with lid and turn on the blender. It should take about 1 to 2 minutes for all the vegetables to be well blended.
Once blended, pour the mixture through a sieve or strainer into a bowl. Using a spoon, Press the vegetable pulp in the strainer to release as much of the liquid into the bowl as possible.
The broth can now either be used immediately or stored in the fridge for up to a week.
It can also be poured into an ice-cube tray and frozen, then used as needed.
I just pop about 3 or 4 frozen broth cubes into the soup while cooking. As it melts and dissolves, all the delicious flavour from the herbs and vegetables are released.
Quick and easy and convenient, a broth made in 5 minutes perfect for your soups, stews or sauce.
