Magic Mineral Broth Recipe

Nancy Desjardins

Do you want to know the difference between good soup and great soup? It’s all about the homemade broth or stock. That is the rock-solid foundation on which fantastic soups are built. I’ve been making Rebecca Katz’s Magic Mineral Broth the last few weeks.This broth can be transformed to meet a myriad of nutritional needs, serving as a delicious sipping tea or as the powerful base for more hearty soups and stews. So, no matter what a person’s appetite, it can provide a tremendous nutritional boost. This rejuvenating liquid allows the body to refresh and restore itself. I think of it as a tonic, designed to keep you in tip-top shape.

Green beans and parsnips have a tremendous amount of fiber that will keep you full. And fennel will help with digestion and bloating. The whole effect of the dish is a wonderful combination of savory and sweet. It will stave off cravings for too much dessert after a meal.
