I was talking to my friend Jenny this weekend, and she mentioned that she had a problem when recipes call for a small amount of chicken broth. What to do with the rest of the can? I’ve run into that issue many times. You buy a huge can or box of broth and only use a tablespoon. The rest of the broth languishes in the fridge for weeks until you finally have to admit it’s gone bad and throw it out. No more! There are plenty of other uses for the broth.
- One of my favorites is using chicken broth in place of water when cooking grains (rice, quinoa, etc). It gives the grains a bit of extra flavor. Just remember to cut the salt when you use the broth because some broth, even low-sodium varieties, still carry a hefty amount of salt.
- You can also freeze the broth and use it months later when you need another tablespoon!
