“More like an elixir – this simple, traditional veggie stock from The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen is full of immune system supporting and super-hydrating minerals. Perfect for the ailing patient, this nutrient dense veggie broth has amazing health properties.” -Rebecca Katz, The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen


Yields 6 to 7 quarts


6 unpeeled organic carrots

2 unpeeled medium organic yellow onions

1 organic leek, both white and green parts

1 stalk organic celery

4 unpeeled organic cloves garlic, halved

½ bunch organic parsley

4 medium organic red potatoes, quartered with skins on

2 organic Japanese yams or organic sweet potatoes, quartered with skins on

1 organic Garnet yam, quartered with skin on

1 T sea salt

1 strip of kombu

2 organic bay leaves

12 organic peppercorns

4 organic whole allspice or juniper berries



Cut the above ingredients into large chunks and place in a 12 quart stockpot. Fill pot (two inches below rim) with filtered water, then cover and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 2 - 6 hours until vegetables are tender and stock is a medium caramel color. Strain broth and serve hot or refrigerate/freeze, then reheat as needed.

This magic mineral broth is great to drink on it’s own, seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. It also makes an excellent base for soups, stews, sauces, and as a cooking liquid for grains and braised dishes.
