Rich Homemade Vegetable Broth

Vegetable broth is a big part of many vegan/vegetarian recipes.  Being a plant eater means I have an unlimited supply of Vegetable bits, scraps and skins…..all of which make the most beautiful vegetable broth ever.


– Collected and frozen vegetable scraps – water to cover

Simmer the scraps in a stock pot with water for about 30-40 minutes. (If you’re short on space in the fridge and freezer use less water and make broth concentrated. You can dilute when you use it) You can season a bit with sea salt and pepper if you like.

Pull out the larger vegetable scraps and send these to the compost bin!

Pour the broth through a strainer (if you have it) into whatever jars you have on hand. I leave the smaller bits in the broth.

The broth freezes well so you can have broth when you need it! ( fill jars to 2/3 if freezing)
