Homemade Veggie Stock

Homemade Veggie Stock-01

The best thing about this stock is that there isn’t a strict recipe!  You can use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge!  This stock is very economical and much lower in sodium than store bought stocks.

Ingredients:

There isn’t a strict recipe, but the stock with taste best if you start with a few basic ingredients: onion, carrot, celery, and garlic.  Then add additional vegetables that you have on hand.  I added tomato, mushroom, broccoli, and leeks.  I also threw in a bay leaf and some fresh parsley.
