Yield: 2 large bowls
2 medium zucchini, chopped 3 stalks celery, chopped 1 large handful frozen or fresh green beans 1 large handful spinach (optional) 2 cups water 1 handful fresh parsley
In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, steam zucchini, celery, and green beans in water for about 10 minutes or until they’re very soft. Add spinach (if using) at the end and steam for only about 2 minutes. Place veggies, remaining steaming water in the stockpot, and uncooked parsley into a blender and blend for 1 or 2 minutes until smooth. Eat this broth fresh from the blender for the best taste.
Variation: You can substitute with more spinach if green beans are unavailable. When you’re not fasting, Bieler’s Broth makes a rich, wholesome base you can add other ingredients and flavors to. You also can flavor it to your liking by adding oil, saute onions, garlic, and other vegetables such as broccoli, additional chopped zucchini and celery, and snow peas. Or flavor with sea salt and black pepper or cayenne.
