Get all the benefits of bone broth without animal bones! This Easy Vegan Bone Broth contains sea moss gel for collagen and is great to use in soup recipes!
Is there a vegan version of bone broth?
Not a version but a BETTER alternative! It is believed to help build collagen in the body by consuming animal by-products. (The bones of animals).
Does eating fat give you fat? If I ate hair would that make my hair grow longer? Eating collagen from animal bones doesn’t automatically give you collagen. It’s the nutrition in the broth, the minerals (which come from plants) is what helps your body produce collagen.
How do vegans get collagen?
But like I stated earlier, your body produces it’s own collagen when it is fed the proper nutrition. So it’s not that sea moss gives you anything per se, it helps your body do what it is supposed to do because it’s high in minerals.
So how do vegans get their collagen? By consuming a mineral plant-based rich diet, which is what this better than bone broth recipe contains! Also note, sea moss has been used for years for digestive issues, which boosts this vegan bone broth gut-healing properties.

Additional Sea Moss Information
Slow Cooker Vegan Bone Broth
- 1 cup danelion greens note 1
- 2 cups dried mushrooms (I used wood ear) note 1
- thumb size piece of ginger note 1
- ¼ cup Sea Moss Gel note 4
- 3 dry or fresh bay leaves
- 1 cup dried kelp note 1
- handful of cilantro or culantro note 2
- 1 tablespoons sea salt (optional) note 3
- 10 cups spring water
- Add all your vegetables, Sea Moss Gel, and sea salt to your slow cooker (be sure to rinse your danelion greens, ginger, and fresh bay leaves). Cover with spring water and and cook low for 8 hours. (You can even cook for up to 24 hours!)
- Once done cooking, place a strainer over a large glass bowl and pour broth into the bowl through the strainer.
- Store your homemade vegan broth in clean mason glass jars and store in the refriderator for 5 to 7 days. It can be frozen in ice cube strays for up to 3 months.
- You can drink this vegan bone broth as is (½ cup a day) or add it to homemade soups, quinoa, or whatever recipe calls for broth! Because this gel has sea moss, as it cools it will become thick (that's where the collagen properties come into play!) But don't worry it won't gel up!
- VEGETABLES: The vegetables used in this recipe are optional and not meant to be exact. That is the thing with homemade broths! You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. I typically just keep a bag of frozen vegetable and use it to make vegetable broth
- CILANTRO: When I originally recorded this recipe, cilantro was on the current Dr. Sebi list. I recently found out that it’s “culantro” that Dr. Sebi recommends instead of cilantro. If you follow a strict Dr. Sebi diet, simply use culantro or omit that ingredient altogether.
- SEA SALT: The sea salt is optional but it does add extra flavor. Sometimes I do leave it out as I add my own seasoning to individual recipes. Plus this recipe has kelp which is naturally high in sodium.
- SEA MOSS GEL: Visit Sea Moss Gel Recipe to learn how to make it.
- HIGH SODIUM: Note that the high sodium content in this recipe is due to the sea vegetable kelp. It’s a whole food source high in iodine and is not the same as table salt or even sea salt. If this bothers you, or you have a serious thyroid issue (or even allergic to any type of sea food in general), simply leave it out.
