The Magic Mineral Broth
At a conference, I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Katz, nutrition pioneer, and author of several cookbooks.
"Nutritional Healing" is a fascinating topic. My primary interest is for my clients to receive the nutrients they need, through the most natural, healthiest food choices!
I love this particular recipe, "the Magic Mineral Broth" from her book, The Longevity Kitchen.
I usually make a large amount, freeze some, and use it as a foundation of my healthy cooking.
This is the recipe for a nutrient dense vegetable broth with amazing health properties.
The Magic Mineral Broth



1 fennel bulb, with tops

2 unpeeled yellow onions, cut into quarters

6 unpeeled carrots, cut into thirds

1 bunch celery, including the heart, cut into thirds

2 unpeeled sweet potatoes, cut into chunks

1 large bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley

6 sprigs fresh thyme

12 large cloves unpeeled garlic, smashed

1 piece of unpeeled fresh ginger, cut in half lengthwise

12 black peppercorns

2 bay leaves

8 quarts cold filtered water, plus more if needed

1 teaspoon of sea salt

Rinse all vegetables well. Put the fennel, onions, carrots, leek, celery, sweet potatoes, parsley, thyme, garlic, ginger, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a 12-quart or larger stockpot. Add the water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Decrease the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 2 to 4 hours. As the broth simmers, some of the water will evaporate; add more water if the vegetables begin to peek out. Simmer until the full richness of the vegetables can be tasted.
Strain the broth through a large, coarse mesh sieve placed over a large heatproof container. Stir in the salt. Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating or freezing.
