Meatless Monday: Simple Vegan Broth (with Onions)

For this week's MMAZ, our ingredient is onions.  Delicious and super healthy (properties include anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antioxidant, and may help prevent osteoporosis), we eat a lot of onions in our household!  Here's a simple vegan broth/base for soups or a hearty veggie chili:

Heat large pot over medium heat, add:
2 Tablespoons grapeseed or coconut oil

Add:
1 chopped onion
1 chopped carrot
1 chopped celery stalk
 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Cook for about 10 minutes, until vegetables are softened but not browned.

I added a red and yellow bell pepper for vegan chili...
Continue with ingredients and spices for soup, chili or other flavorful meal.

  1. LOVE veggie broths. I like to collect the washed ends of my vegetables in a bag and then cook them up.. carrots, celery, zukes, and the like... it is nice cause it is a bit different every time depending on what we have been eating and ends up in the bag.
