Recipes to Use Up Extra Broth

We’ve all been there.

A recipe calls for 8oz of broth so you buy a 32oz container because that’s pretty much the only size it comes in. Fast forward to a few weeks later and you’re dumping that extra chicken, beef or veggie stock down the drain because it didn’t get used before it expired.

Well, these simple recipes will ensure you don’t let that extra broth go to waste and help you get dinner on the table in no time.

If you’ve EVER made risotto before (even just that one time) you know the constant stirring, wrist-breaking agony and the continual doubting: “Did I just add too much broth?” Or, “Is this going to get gummy?”

Well the Instant Pot is a great method for making risotto more attainable as a menu item on heavy rotation in your house.

And if you follow this tip from Bon Appetit, it’s sure to be decadent, filling and delicious.

These green beans call for a splash of broth for that little bit at the bottom that you don’t have the heart to throw away.
