Light Vegetable Broth

Recipe by TishT

This is a basic stock that may be used in place of water in most any vegetable soup to give added depth of flavor. It's also a good way to use up vegetables that are limp or less than perfectly fresh!

i found this recipe easy to prepare and very fast. i substituted the herb seasoning with fresh herbs - sweet basil, rosemary, parsley and origanum. it came out with very intense aromas and flavours, which i like. i used is as a base for Minestrone Verde #24309 by Vic1 and was delighted by the flavours once again.
