Elly Curshen – My Magic Ingredient


Food writer and former owner of Bristol’s The Pear Cafe, Elly Curshen delves into Purearth’s Vegan Broth

This vegan broth comes in a 540ml glass bottle and is made by the same guys who make a range of vegan water kefir drinks – one of which glows almost radioactively due to the spirulina. I love them and was excited to discover more of their range. 

They have now launched this vegan broth in two flavours. I had a bottle of the Turmeric Spice Infusion in my fridge, and when the summer weather took a turn, I started craving something hot and nourishing. 

Consisting of carrots, onions, turmeric root, ginger root, apple cider vinegar, cardamom, cumin, cayenne, and bay – this organic and gluten-free broth is beautifully fragrant. 

I make a really simple soup using lots of finely chopped veg and a smattering of broken spaghetti all cooked in this. Finish by sprinkling a handful of toasted pine nuts on top. A delicious, nutritious dinner in 10 minutes flat!

Elly bought hers at Better Food in Bristol.
