A number of years ago, I discovered Magic Mineral Broth in a cookbook titled The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Katz. I love the idea of using actual vegetables in a broth to give my body the minerals it needs instead of turning to a bottle of vitamins and minerals.
My take on this broth is a bit different than the original recipe. I like adding in ginger and turmeric. And by all means—make this broth your own too by using the vegetables, herbs, and spices that you like best. You can’t make a mistake!
And don’t worry about all the vegetables you use to make the broth. They won’t go to waste. I show you how to puree them to make a wonderful creamy soup.
A Word of Caution
I am not a medical doctor, so to be safe, be sure to check with your physician before taking Super Mineral Broth or any natural remedy.
