Recipe: Sadie's Vitality Broth
What you will need:
4-5 cups of water
1 can (approx 470g - 500g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 and a half tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tp 2 tbsp fresh finely chopped parsley or 1 to 2 tsp dried
Just less than a tsp of salt, and onion powder (optional)
1 quarter tsp garlic powder (optional)
Dash of paprika and ground coriander
pinch of ground tumeric
2 thirds cup of orzo ( rice shaped pasta) or other small pasta.
Combine the water, chickpeas, nutritional yeast flakes, salt, herbs and spices in a large saucepan and bring to boil. Add the pasta and stir well. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until the pasta is tender, approx 20 minutes.
Notes: Nutritional yeast cane be found in health food shops and is NOT to same as Brewer's yeast! Fresh parsley is what I used and always prefer. The flavour is better and the best thing is - parsley is easy to grow, including in pots. The pasta I used was made of corn - it keeps its shape when cooked and it is gluten free.
