Green Tea and Ginger Broth with Scallions

We all know the wisdom of consuming ginger to relieve morning sickness, but did you know that it has to be taken for a few days for the best results? If you’re concerned about the sugar content of ginger ale or ginger snaps, or if you’re just not into ginger chews or ginger tea, here is a great broth recipe that is also tasty for the non-pregnant members of your household!

Not only is this broth good on it’s own, it’s also delicious as a base for wonton soup, noodle soup or a miso-less miso. If you want to make it a light meal, try it in Buzzfeed’s Spring Greens + Beans Soup.

Green Tea and Ginger Broth

  • 4 C water
  • 1 1/2 tsp vegetable bouillon
  • 2 inches of ginger, sliced
  • 2 bags decaf green tea
  • 1 tbs tamari
  • 1/2 tsp lime juice

Bring water to a boil and add bouillon, ginger and tea bags.  Simmer for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and pour through strainer.  Add tamari and lime juice

If you’re going to add noodles, wontons, or if you’re not ready to serve immediately, return to a simmer and cover.
