Vegetable Broth: Richly Fragrant with Spices

in #hive-1805694 months ago

Like a secret pleasure from a lot of soupy food.
Vegetable Broth is one of the ingredients that deserve to enrich the taste of gravy foods.


Do you like soupy food? If so, then this post can add to your ideas for enriching the taste of the soup. If you don't like soupy foods, then the recipe that I'm going to post can also make soup dishes even tastier.


To be honest, I also just found out about the idea of making vegetable broth recently from the internet. Usually, before using vegetable broth, I only use spices and herbs directly on soupy foods. But this has a weakness. I have to separate the spices and herbs particles that have been mixed with the sauce. It is painstaking work! So, vegetable broth is a brilliant idea!


Like a secret pleasure from a lot of soupy food. Vegetable Broth is one of the ingredients that deserve to enrich the taste of gravy foods.

A Combination Of Many Vegetables


We have many options for using various vegetables to make vegetable broth. Starting from root vegetables, onions, and many choices of herbs.

EBDE9BD1-2024-46E1-B4FA-F01CA4C4F5D8.jpegFor root vegetables, I usually use white potatoes and red potatoes. Then besides potatoes, I use carrots. We no longer need to peel potatoes and carrots.

Even if we have leftover carrot potato skins, we can make those skins into veggie broth ingredients. It's just that, we should wash the potatoes and carrots before peeling them so that we can safely use their skins for veggie broth ingredients.

So, if we have a lot of onion and garlic skins, we can combine them with the root vegetable skins later. If you don't have enough to make broth, then you can store the vegetable peels in the fridge. Then when the amount of them is according to what we need, we can cook them together. Don't forget to prioritize the cleanliness factor.

The Richness of Taste and Aroma of Spices

Spices are like a beautiful secret that turns ordinary water into fragrant and strong-tasting water.

You can use the local spices that you use every day if you can't find the spices as I use. In this vegetable broth recipe, I used cloves, Lawang flowers, cumin, dried bay leaves, and cinnamon stalk.

For those of you who want a spicier sensation, you can add pepper that is still in granular form, not pepper that isn't powdered yet.

Amount of Water Measures Used

In this recipe, I use 1 liter of water. Then when I saw that there was actually a little water left, I finally added more water so that the final result of vegetable broth would be more.

Decreasing of water also occurs when I use high heat so that the water evaporates faster when cooked for one hour.

Easy To Make It


After preparing a variety of vegetables and spices, then we can make vegetable broth in an uncomplicated way. We just need to wait for all the ingredients to give the best taste and aroma to the water.

First of all, cut all vegetables. Then arrange it in a cooking pot. Don't forget to add spices and herbs.


Oh, that's a beautiful creation. I love to see the different colors and shapes of vegetables in a pot, forming a beautiful harmony.

The result is water that is fragrant and rich in spices. Congratulations, we already have a vegetable broth that can be stored for up to a week to enrich our dishes.

After getting in vegetable broth, let it cool to room temperature. Then store them in a jar or bottle and then place them in the refrigerator.

In addition, you can also store vegetable broth longer by freezing them. So later it will be shaped like ice cubes.

Well, I really like being able to make vegetable broth. Later I will make some soup from this vegetable broth. Also, I can make instant noodles tastier by using this vegetable broth even without other packaged spices. That's a is healthier option!


I hope you guys like my recipe this time. In fact, it is very basic to use soupy foods, but it will be very useful.

Have you ever used vegetable broth to complement soups or other types of soup like curry? What's your favorite soup or curry?

Thank you for reading my blog and reblog if you want my blog this time worthy of reading by others.

Hi, I love broths, but this is my first time seeing the combination with spices such as cinnamon, cloves and aniseed. I imagine it gives it a different taste and flavour.
My broths usually contain a lot of greens; coriander, celery, chives, mint, garlic and I add them to almost every preparation.

Maybe in your city is not familiar with spices like in my city.
So yeah, in broth, just use similar ingredients in your daily meal to make the results isnt weird in your taste buds 😊

I still find it fascinating to see recipes from other countries, it's a way of getting closer through our culture.
We continue to read each other

Make them a cube shape sized is such a great idea. I dont know why but the taste of potato and carrot based soup always irritate me because it has a weird earthy taste but i might have to try your recipe too because you put a lot of spices.

Its okay you skip the root vegetables. Just use celery, spring onion, onion, and lots of spices.

My husband said the smell really similar with misop gravy

Malam, mba anggrek. Salam.. lama tidak liat hive dan steemit. Saya lupa buka akun lama. Jadi buka yang baru lagi. Apa mba masih ingat saya ya?

wah saya sudah lupa. siapa ya?

This is inspirational. I’ve never used, made or really thought about vegetable stock. I love soups and often make them but usually just add vegetables to the soup itself.
This is a great way to use peels. I like that in this process the vegetables don’t have to be peeled though they have to be carefully washed. 😆This might sound fickle but I love the look of the cut of the garlic and would make sure I have that in my stock. It's usually a sure ingredient for many of the dishes I make.
Dropping or adding an icecube of flavor to a dish is so convenient and effective. I sometimes do it with coconut milk.

Spices are like a beautiful secret that turns ordinary water into fragrant and strong-tasting water.

This! Well said. 😃

Vegetable broth will helps us to avoid spices particles on gravy, especially with creamy gravy. so, by using vegetable broth, it will helps enrich taste with no hard texture of herb and spices in our food

😃Yes, it’s really a good way to avoid those particles and add flavor.
