Cooking time

10 minutes




760 /serving

Broth, bouillon, brodo… However you say it, this soupy base has the cure for the winter blues—especially when zazzed up with fresh lemon. You’ll add a dash of juice and zest to your pot, along with our trusty veggie demi-glace and our Al Limone seasoning blend. It’s an invitation those fresh cheese tortellini can’t resist! Give them green peas and wilted kale for company, and crisp up Parmesan in the oven for a crackling cheesy counterpoint.

Make the brodo
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Zest and juice the lemon. Mince the garlic. In a medium pot, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium-high. Sauté the lemon zest, garlic and spices, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add 4 cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of S&P; bring to a boil. Add the demi-glace and ⅓ of the lemon juice. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until slightly reduced. If desired, gradually add the remaining lemon juice for a more pronounced flavour.
