MINERALIZING ORGANIC VEGETABLE BROTH
This recipe is warming, nourishing, delicious and mineralizing for your body. Helps keep the liquid flow of your body to continue flowing. Also can be a recipe for a fasting cleanse for those who are vegan/vegetarian. Plus it is great for those who live in colder climates where a bit of warming mineralizing organic vegetable broth provides the nutrients & ahhhhhhhh.
ITEMS TO GATHER:
* ORGANIC VEGETABLES: I gathered Dakion (like a carrot/radish~it is a power vegetable), Carrots, Kale, Dandelion & Yellow Squash.
* AGAR or AGAR AGAR (is a red algae and a unique vegetable source protein that acts as a vegetarian gelatin for thickener)
* KOMBU (it may be referred to as Konbu in Japanese ~ it is a seaweed ~ this can be dried or raw)
* ORGANIC RAW COCONUT OIL
* A LARGE POT ~ A STRAINER ~ JARS TO STORE YOUR BROTH
* PURIFIED WATER as your base
COMBINE ALL ORGANIC VEGETABLES IN LARGE POT FILLED WITH PURIFIED WATER ~ BOIL FOR AROUND 20 MINUTES.
Strain vegetables from water ~ you will now have your base vegetable broth where you will add some more water + 1 big Tablespoon of AGAR + a few large pieces of KOMBU. Save your boiled vegetables for a meal time ~ I also share my boiled vegetables with my dog.
You will boil for 15 ~ 20 minutes allowing the sea vegetables of the AGAR + KOMBU to fully integrate their mineral content into the broth.
Remove KOMBU from broth and save the physical flesh piece of the KOMBU for a salad. You will want to add your COCONUT OIL to your broth after the KOMBU is removed. I use around 1 TEASPOON OF COCONUT OIL per large bowl of broth. If your broth makes 4 or 5 bowls ~ then add 4 or 5 teaspoons of COCONUT OIL.
PLEASE NOTE: You will have a lot of broth ~ you may want to refrigerate some of the broth for later. If you save some of your broth for later do not add the COCONUT OIL ~ wait until you heat it up again and add a TEASPOON of COCONUT OIL to your broth serving when reheating. It is just easier to add COCONUT OIL at the end because once COCONUT OIL gets cold in a refrigerator it is thick and hard to get out of jar properly.
This recipe takes around 45 minutes to prepare ~ though the broth is completely worth it for remineralizing your body. I learned this recipe from a nutritionist and I found it very, very helpful with being able to have a good nourishing broth that tastes good while giving the body good minerals in liquid form of food.
IN~JOY ! Love, Catalina
