Homemade Vegetable Broth

Following a special request from a client, we wanted to share with you too – an easy recipe for homemade vegetable broth:

MB 11-03 - Gemuese-bruehe

You need:
1 serving of vegetables (carrots, leek, fennel, celery, onion)
fresh parsley
salt
pepper
fresh ginger
fresh garlic
thyme
rosemary
oregano
marjoram

Preparation:

Wash and chop the vegetables to even sized chunks. Add all the vegetables with the spices and herbs to a large heavy based pot. Pour in 1 liter (34 fl.oz.) of cold water, bring to the boil, simmer lightly for about 1 hour and leave to steep for half an hour. Finally pour everything through a fine sieve and season to taste.

It’s best to prepare a larger amount and freeze it in several servings.  Then you’ll always have fresh vegetable broth.
