  • A big saucepan


  • Different vegetable scraps, skins, cores of fruits, etc
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Herbs of your choice, fresh or dry
  • Water
  • Salt


  • In a big saucepan add the vegetable scraps, skins, cores, etc add the whole garlic and herbs
  • Add water to the same level as veggies scraps, add salt and bring to a boiling point
  • Lower the heat to medium-high and leave to boil for an hour or so
  • Let the broth cool before draining
  • With your hands squeeze the cooked scraps to extract more broth and nutrients
  • Warm some broth and enjoy it but you can spice it
  • Transfer the rest into mason jars, tightly close the broth and store in the fridge up to a week.


I can't really give you a recipe for this vegetable broth to be honest, it all depends with how much vegetables scraps you have. 
You can decide to make a lot of broth or just a little depending on how often you eat vegetables and fruits.
Just note though, the more scraps, skins, cores etc you'll have the rich and dense your vegetable broth will be.
Don't forget to squeeze the cooked scraps to remove extra nutrients.
