Make no bones about it, this is hands down far more nurturing than any animal-based broth ever could be. If you are looking for a mineral rich and healing stock, look no further! The sea vegetable arame adds an abundance of minerals to the stock and is the perfect vegan substitute for animal product-based "healing" broths. This recipe can be enjoyed while fasting on liquids or any other time you wish to give your digestive system a rest. Chop the vegetables as small as possible to have the flavor come out with less cooking time.
