Cooking Instructions Home Made Vegetable Broth

  • Cut all vegetables in cubes or small pieces. You can peel onions and garlic but you don’t have to.
  • Heat oil, brown vegetable briefly.
  • Cut thyme and parsley in pieces, add to veggies. Saute for 1 min.
  • Add water, bring to a brief boil. Reduce heat. Remove foam with a ladle.
  • If no more foam is occurring add the spices, bay leaves, cloves.
  • Let simmer for 60 min.
  • Pour the broth through a sieve, press the cooked vegetable through the sieve as well (it should be a fine sieve). The broth can cook a little longer to get more flavorful.
  • Fill the broth into jars and keep them in the fridge (good for 2-3 weeks). Or freeze the broth (good for 6 months in the freezer), use ice cubes containers for small portions.
