Vegetable Broth

As a kid my mum always made us broth and we absolutely loved it, especially with tortellini swimming in this liquid gold. It was one of my favorite dinners. So nourishing, particularly on a cold winter’s night or when I was a bit under the weather.

Well not much has changed, I still love my warm, healthy vegetable broth and my kids have learned to enjoy it as much as I do. This is what I love so much about food – it brings back so many memories and I’m so excited to share some of my childhood memories with my kids, through food.

Vegetable broth is also one of those kitchen staples. Added to any soup for extra flavour or risotto. I always have broth in the fridge or freezer.
