Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

This recipe comes courtesy of my husband, who is a huge “biscuits and gravy” fan. The problem? After he did a round of Whole30, he realized that dairy really doesn’t agree with him. I could’ve told you that years ago because of the, ahem, effects, […]

Pickled Eggs from the UP

I went to school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Being from Alaska, I never looked into the weather in the location of my school studies. Instead, I made the assumption that “anywhere would be better” as far as the weather was concerned. I was […]

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Did you know thta you can use your veggie scraps to make vegetable broth? I had heard this but it sounded a little intimidating. Again, just like with ghee and bone broth, I was wrong. It’s SUPER easy and even more so with my Instant Pot {link!}. Basically, you just save up your vegetable scraps, add in spices and water, cook, then strain. This instant pot veggie broth works great in any recipe that calls for broth In many instances this can be subbed for water for even more flavor in a dish!

Oh also, it’s a great way to use up food and get more for your dollar. I don’t ever plan to buy veggie broth again now that I can make this instant pot veggie broth. Once you’ve made it, freeze it up in silicone muffin pans {I like these ones} and use as needed.

Instructions
  1. As you make other recipes, save the veggie scraps you'd typically throw out or compost. Save them by freezing and fill as you go.
  2. Place all veggie scraps and spices into Instant Pot
  3. Cover with water and fill to the top line in the Instant Pot (the one that says 2/3 filled). Do not go above this line.
  4. Set to Manual High Pressure for 1hour.
  5. Let the Instant Pot work it's magic. When the time is up, quick release the vent.
  6. Strain the broth using a fine mesh strainer.
  7. Your instant pot veggie broth is ready to use or store! Unlike bone broth, I would recommend only making one round of broth from each batch of veggies.
Recipe Notes

This Instant Pot Veggie Broth can be stored in the fridge for up to one week. I store mine in large mason jars {link!} If you are approaching the week mark, just freeze the remainder and use as needed. I like to freeze mine in silicone muffin pans like this one. Instant pot veggie broth makes a great soup base.

Other Notes for Instant Pot Veggie Broth:

  • For pepper scraps, make sure to roast prior to freezing or the broth may become slightly bitter.
  • Feel free to substitute any fresh herbs for the dried ones listed. The reason I wrote fresh rosemary is simply because that's what I had on my counter.

  As a veteran “Whole-30er,” bone broth is one of those things I just didn’t quite understand. It was way too expensive to buy for our tight budget, and seemed like too much work to make otherwise. Despite three separate rounds of Whole30 (one while […]
