Sometimes you just need a practical recipe (not really a recipe, just a method) to have on hand that is a basis of a new or old family favorite. This Homemade Vegetable Broth is fat free, delicious and all it costs you is vegetable scraps, some veggies you already have, some water and optional seasoning! The beauty of it besides it’s crazy-cheap, is it’s made in your kitchen from your own vegetable scraps and your clean water. Just keep a freezer bag in your freezer and add your vegetable scraps until it’s full, then you’ll be ready to make your own broth that you know is made of fresh water, is free of oil, salt, gluten and chemicals. And, it’s super tasty and so easy!
I love a well seasoned fillet of fish, sauteed in a small amount of oil on a smoking hot cast iron skillet! I found a blackening spice rub recipe in a cookbook I enjoy Cook This, Not That! and was excited to make this from-scratch blend for my Blackened Cod! The moist fish has a crispy exterior and the blackening spice rub gives it an explosion of flavor!
Need an appetizer to bring to a get-together this weekend or just want a delicious snack? You’ll want to make this one ASAP! It’s a toasty baguette slice topped with caramelized fennel, roasted red pepper and herbed goat cheese. An incredible combination of flavors and textures! Check out my contribution for this month over at Pink Heels Pink Truck for the how-to and more photos!
