Homemade Vegetable Broth

Since  a store - bought broth containes onion, garlic and leeks, my preference is to make it at home.Homemade vegetable broth is easy to make and so much healthier and more flavorful than anything that you can buy in a supermarket. A basic and flavorful vegetable broth recipe to make vegetarian soups, vegetarian gravy, or just to add flavor to a variety of vegetarian recipes. 

Chopped Carrot               – 1 no
chopped Celery               – 1 stalks
chopped Potato                 – 2 no
chopped Cauliflower        – ½ cup
chopped Zucchini             1 no
 Chopped Any greens       – 1 cup
Bay Leaves                       3 no
 Chopped Capsicum          – 1 no
Mushrooms   (optional)       ¼ cup
Water                                6 cups
Dash salt and pepper


  • Put all ingredients in a large pot and bring to boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  • Strain out the vegetables and remove the bay leaves.
  • Broth is ready to use as a base for soups, gravies.
