A simple recipe for a comforting and nourishing healing mineral broth that can be sipped on its own or used in soups and stews to restore and revitalize the body. A true medicinal tonic.


  • 3 large carrots – cut into thirds
  • 6 stalks celery, cut into thirds
  • 1 unpeeled sweet potato, cut into large pieces
  • 1/2 bunch kale, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 2  four inch pieces of kombu (like this)
  • 4 whole cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Rinse all vegetables well and place into large stock pot with all the remaining ingredients.  Add 5-6 quarts of clean water. Cover and bring to a boil. 
  2. Once broth comes to a boil, lower heat and simmer slowly, partially covered, for 2-3 hours.  Add more water if needed as vegetables float to the surface. 
  3. Allow to cool slightly and strain through a large sieve.  Store in fridge in glass jars for up to 5 days OR freeze for later. 


I freeze my broth for later use either in THESE pint sized jars.  They are the ONLY jars that don’t break on me in the freezer.  Or I freeze them in large ice cube trays LIKE THIS. 

I’m always trying to be careful not to create food waste. After my broth is finished, I pull out the bay leaf and kombu and puree the leftover veggies with a bit of the broth for a thick, hearty green soup.  Take your time and get it really creamy smooth. It’s delicious. ( I use my hand immersion blender.)
