3 Basic (Delicious!) Broth Recipes You Can Sip or Turn Into Soup

Making your own broth sounds daunting, but these basic broth recipes prove it’s not nearly as labor intensive as you might imagine.

That’s because Danielle Capalino, a Nutritious Life Certified registered dietitian wants to make your (healthy) life easy. Capalino is a major advocate for the Low-FODMAP Diet as a cure for many common issues related to digestion. Her last book focused on how to eat to avoid FODMAPs for less bloating and better overall gut health. This follow-up focuses on what to drink for the same results. Healthy Gut, Flat Stomach Drinks contains 75 recipes for smoothies, juices, tonics, and even cocktails (and mocktails). And chapter two is all about “sippable soups and broths.”

Not only are homemade broths good for your gut health thanks to tons of vitamins and minerals, they’re notoriously flavorful and provide warmth and comfort on cold, winter days. Plus, they’re multi-taskers: You can make a big pot and then choose to sip from a steaming mug, make a soup for dinner, or cook your grains (like brown rice or quinoa) in broth for a major flavor boost.

The best part is that 90 percent of the process involves leaving a pot on the stove to simmer on its own. Everybody’s got time for that. Below, you’ll find three of Capalino’s favorite basic broth recipes from her book, with options for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
