Vegan Bone Broth (or more like “Vegan ‘No Bone’ Broth) is exactly what we’ve been wanting to create for a vegetarian alternative to traditional bone broth! With a robust flavor it looks and tastes wonderful! We are excited for you to try it! We think if you didn’t tell anyone it wasn’t chicken broth, they’d think it was! Yup, it’s that flavorful 🙂
Reap the many rewards drinking this delicious tasting nutrient rich vegan bone broth with NO BONES! It’s ready to serve in just 2 hours!
To begin with, our No-Bone Broth rivals animal-based broths both in taste and in benefit! Who knew! Peg’s was inspired to create a flavorful mineral-rich stock that had tons of nutrients as well as flavor for Annie, Meg’s mostly vegetarian sister. Heading into winter we all need to have our ammunition ready should sickness strike. This “No Bone” broth is super tasty on it’s own, and is fantastic to enhance your favorite soup recipes.
Meg and I believe there is not one size fits all to living a healthy lifestyle. Everyone has their own preferences and beliefs. Eventually, we learn what works best for our own body. Having choices is what we are all about, and we love sharing all that we learn with you! We love our chicken bone broth and many say it’s one of the best tasting stocks. However to satisfy our many veggie lover plant based vegan friends and family we created this “NO Bone” broth for you. And it delivers both in taste and benefit. It’s also great to use as the base in our Healing Soup.
Can Vegans Have Bone Broth?
Well yes, they can!
If you’ve noticed lately, grocery stores are inundated with bone broth products, and for good reason! There are so many great properties in drinking, sipping or slurping this super broth. After really hunkering down, I visited some of our favorite vegan and plant based websites and cookbooks to get inspired. I was super excited to learn about the plethora of vegetables and sea vegetables that actually help our body produce the immune boosting, collagen building, anti-inflammatory nutrients that we get from bone broth!
Vegan Broth Benefits All
Two major health benefits from drinking “no bone” broth and bone broth soups are; it strengthens our immunity, and helps build collagen. Why collagen? Collagen not only reduces inflammation in our gut, it supports healthy digestion, joints, bones, hair, nails and skin. As we age, our collagen supply decreases. Drinking bone and “No bone” broths like these help our body rebuild and replenish it’s collagen levels.
As an alternative to bone broths, we’ve added seaweed, turmeric, ginger and healthy fats such as olive oil to gain similar value ingredients that would have equal merit when it came to taste and nourishment! Everyone who tried the soup was blown away by it’s deep rich flavor and color that came from pre-roasting the vegetables and by adding the golden beets. Not only does it taste great, it takes a fraction of the time and cost to prepare. This broth is also 100% Clean too, just in time for our cleansing workshop. Lots of wonderful bonuses!
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to regular bone broth, then vegan bone broth is an excellent option.
Vegan bone broth is made from mushrooms, onions, and carrots—all of which are very nutritious foods. The mushrooms contain many minerals and vitamins that are essential for good health. Onions are rich in sulfur compounds that have antibacterial and antifungal properties; they also contain quercetin, which helps prevent inflammation and protect against cancer. Carrots are packed with vitamin A and beta-carotene; these two nutrients help boost immunity and improve eye health.
This recipe also contains turmeric—a spice that has been used in Indian cooking for centuries because it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric has been shown to reduce symptoms of arthritis by up to 40%!

Do you know what bisphenol A (BPA) is? It’s a chemical that’s been linked to health problems, including cancer. If you want to avoid the harmful effects of bisphenol A (BPA) on your body, we recommend avoiding all plastics containing BPA.
BPA is a chemical used in plastic products to make them more durable and less expensive. While it can help with these things, the negative health effects of BPA include causing hormone imbalances and reproductive problems. It’s especially dangerous for children and pregnant women.
We believe that storing food in containers that contain BPA is not worth the risk. It’s better to use glass containers instead. Glass does not contain any chemicals that could leach into your food, nor does it change the flavor of your broth like plastic does.
That’s why we recommend storing your broth in glass containers whenever possible. Glass does not contain BPA or other harmful chemicals and therefore does not leach into the foods or drinks stored inside it like plastic does. Plus, glass has been used for centuries because it’s durable and beautiful!
. However, we found these airtight lids that fit all Ball and Mason jars that work great for freezing soups. Remember to always leave a couple inches of space in your containers when freezing as the liquids expand. Here are some great lids and storage containers we use.
