Bone broth is all the rage these days. It’s an incredibly nourishing and healing food that can be sipped on alone or used to elevate basic soups and cook whole grains. It’s really an every day staple especially during the cold, flu heavy winter months. Bone broth is especially healing because the simmering process allows the bones to release lots of amazing healing nutrients like collagen, glycine, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and amino acids. (These bones must be from super high-quality grass fed animals.)
Some vegans even make an exception and drink bone broth to help nourish their bodies and to help ensure they are getting all the nutrients they need. For those of you looking for a vegan bone broth recipe (or just aren’t ready to have a big pot of bones simmering away on your stove), I’ve come up with the recipe below. There aren’t any actual bones, but vegetables have tons of minerals that will release while simmering and the wakame is a veggie superstar. This recipe is super flexible so feel free to add in any other veggies or herbs you have on hand. In fact, I like to keep a bag of veggie scraps in my freezer to boil away each Sunday. Each broth has it’s own unique, delicious flavor and the combination below is one of my favorites!
