Over the past few days winter storm Hercules has taken over a large portion of the East coast. This weekend make your family HealthKitchen's healthy Moroccan Style Lentil soup and warm up after a day of snowball fights and snow castle building.
Vegetable stock is a great way to enhance a recipe. Many of HealthKitchen's recipes suggest vegetable or chicken stock in place of water. Making your own stock is very easy and uses the remains of vegetable parts that we typically throw away or compost.
As you try HealthKitchen's recipes keep the remains of the vegetables that you would normally discard. Throw them into a large plastic tupperware or bag and place them in the freezer. Use the remains of celery, bell peppers, carrots, onions, onion peels, garlic peels, bok choy, broccoli, kale stems, green bean ends, etc for your stock.
I hope this tip was helpful. It is a great feeling when you make homemade ingredients, because you know that there are no hidden additives in your food. If you know other people looking to keep their money in their pockets and eat healthy please share this post.
