This is a recipe that I created out of no where. It isn’t something I was necessarily craving but now that I’ve tasted it and know the nutrient profile in the recipe, I can’t stop making it! I have been making this to eat on its own and to freeze into ice cubes as a nutrient dense broth that you could throw into cooking (ie. cook with your quinoa or add to soups). It will especially come in handy whenever I get sick next and in need of a light comfort food like broth. On top of all that, it’s super simple to make!
