This broth is very simple to make. See this month’s Comment by Dr. Matsen, “Two Quick Ways to Tune up the Kidneys,” for more information on why you may need to drink vegetable broth.

  • 2 stalks celery, including leaves, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • skin of 2 potatoes
  • 4 cups (1 l) filtered water

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Strain and enjoy. Keep any extra broth in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator.
