Here is the recipe of the basic vegetable broth I often cook for making brodino con pastina – broth with little shape pasta –
Wash, peel, cut the vegetable in quarters or big pieced and put them in a pot
Add about 4 liters – 1 gallon of water.
Add 1 teaspoon of salt – I use seasalt.
Put the pot on the stove, cover with a lid and turn on the burner on, setting it on high.
When it starts boiling, turn the burner on very low. The broth needs still to simmer. You cook it for about 1 hour.
It’s ready after about 1 hour when al the vegetables are soft.
You separate the liquid part from the vegetables. The liquid part is the broth. It’s ready to be used.
The vegetables can be eaten in pieces
or you can blend them with an immersion blender and eat them as a soup.
Enjoy the soup!
