Easy to make with vegetables you already have on hand, this flavorful broth will enhance your favorite vegetarian soups and stews. Try using it instead of water for rice or quinoa, too.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1 potato, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 4 sprigs fresh flat-leaf or curly parsley
Method:
