I made some vegetable soup yesterday using a broth from vegetable scraps. I got this great idea from Jay.
You know all those carrot tops, potato peelings, onion and garlic skins, pepper guts, asparagus ends……well you get the idea. This stuff usually just gets thrown out. I always thought it was a waste.
Now any time I prep vegetables I put the peelings in a bag in the freezer. When it’s full I stuff the peelings in a pot, cover with water, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and bring to a boil then simmer for about 45 minutes.
After straining I have a pot of lovely additive free broth. If I make a lot I freeze the extra.
Just add some vegetables and seasoning and you have a delicious soup.
Thank you Jay for this healthy nutritious recycling idea.
