Mexican Harvest Soup - GFCF- Vegan

I keep a gallon size freezer bag in my freezer all the time, each time I cut onions, celery, kale, whatever, all the carrot tops and all go into the freezer bag- when it's full I use it to make a vegetable broth. It's amazing! I dump the whole bag in my 8 qt stock pot and fill it about 3/4 full of water and add a tablespoon of salt and cook on medium heat with a lid till the broth is dark and the smell is heavenly! (Maybe 3 hours) Then I just use a fine mesh strainer to skim out all the cooked veggie pieces. Voila!
