Gut Health Broth #1
Vegan Bone Broth
This gut healing broth forms part of the DBM Gut Healing Program
A vegan bone broth recipe? You’re probably wondering how that’s even possible. There are no vegan bones, but there are vegetables that are exceptionally nourishing and good for health. Unlike animal products, which are highly acidic, a vegetable broth is alkaline and can bring balance to a body that’s already too acidic. Whilst some of these ingredients might be unfamiliar to the patient, essentially the broth will work even without some of the ingredients as it is highly alkalising so will allow the gut time to repair.
- 4 tablespoons cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 onion, roughly chopped
- 1 package of dried wakame reconstituted in a bowl of water
- ½ cup coconut aminos
- ¼ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
- 1 cup golden beetroot thinly sliced in strips
- 1 cup onion, roughly chopped
- 2 cups celery, finely chopped
- 4 cups mixed fresh chopped spinach and kale
- 12 cups filtered, or spring water
- Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
- Pink Himalayan salt to taste
- ½-inch fresh turmeric, minced (optional)
- Slow cooker (a slow cooker is recommended for safety reasons if you have to leave home while it’s cooking.) Alternatively, a stockpot or crockpot
- Place all ingredients into either a pressure cooker or a stainless steel pot, except for the coconut aminos.
- In a bowl, soak the wakame in lukewarm water for 10 minutes. It will swell and become a rich, glossy green. Drain the excess water off of the wakame and add it to the slow cooker along with all the other ingredients with the exception of the parsley and miso paste. Cook for 24 hours.
- Add the fresh parsley about 10 minutes before finishing the stock, as this will add healthy mineral ions to your broth.
- Once the broth is ready, add coconut aminos just before serving.
- Drink 2 cups (250ml) per day (lunch & dinner), for 28 consecutive days, or as recommended by practitioner.
