Hearty veggie broth
This is my go-to broth base as I do not eat meat or chicken. I do eat fish but the type of broth is pretty specific to certain dishes. My hearty veggie broth works well with brown rice or any whole wheat grain. It’s a great base for many soups and works well with almond milk to make a white (bechmel) sauce.
Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a large dutch oven. Heat to medium high and add chopped onions, peppers and garlic. Saute for about three minutes until the onion starts to turn clear. Add the water and all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Taste for salt and pepper adjustment and bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes and adjust for all seasonings. Simmer another 15 minutes and allow broth to cool. Remove all veggies and use or freeze. I freeze this broth in batches of 2 cups in ziplock bags.
Makes approximately six cups. Enjoy!
