BETTER. Slow Cooker
From the beginning of BETTER – Sheri and Nancy have said you gotta make your own stuff. And if you’re a plant-powered eater and cook, you’ll likely find yourself with vegetable trimmings and root ends leftover and laying around at the end of the week. Here’s the hack: save these bits and bobs to make your own delish, homemade veg broth. Nancy’s favorite way to make it is with a slow cooker (hack numero two!). Throw all the trimmings you’ve saved in the pot, cover with filtered water, turn it on and let it go. Strain it the next day, and there’s your ready-to-use homemade broth.
We love this Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker for just such a task. It’s fast, consistent and easy. Basically, it’s 7 appliances in one (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer) so you can use it for all sorts of recipes from The Pillar Life Kitchen.
