Healthy Vegan No Bone Broth

I don't know about you, but the idea of broth (Animal Bone Broth) that's been marinated and boiled in animal carcass just doesn't really jive with me. But I've always loved the idea of drinking a warm cup of super duper nutritious broth on a cold winter morning. So I came up with this Vegan No Bone broth. Drinking broth might not be for you, and if that's the case you can also just use it in replace of any store bought broth when cooking at home!

Everything I've added to this broth has both a nutritional purpose as well as a taste element purpose. However, feel free to add even more veggies you love to up the nutrition and flavor depth. For example mushrooms, spinach, celery, onions, etc.

It's like a cross between a "Chicken" broth & a veggie broth in terms of flavor, but if you want it more "chickeny", just add some poultry seasoning to it! And of course, it's great for making your soups this winter! This recipe makes quite a lot of broth, but it can be frozen too, or you could simply halve the recipe if you don't want extra to freeze or give away! Happy Brothing!
