Veggie-broth Vichyssoise

July 11, 2020 / by Junko


Do you know veggie-broth (vegetable stock)?
Veggie-broth is a broth that you get from scrap veggies, such as the stems, peel, or cores of carrots, onions and other vegetables.
This broth is full of sweetness from the vegetables, and is full of nutrition. Kei made “Vichyssoise (cold potato soup)” using veggie-broth instead of chicken broth.

250g-300g Vegetable peels, shavings, seeds, cut-off parts

1/2-1 tbsp shio-koji (1/2 tsp salt)
