Roasted Vegetable Stock

"A flavorful stock to use for soup, sauce, or gravy or any recipe calling for vegetable stock. This is a good way to use up bits of leftover vegetables too. You can use recipe #235039 #235039, or potato water saved from boiling potatoes, instead of the water in this recipe. Other stock or broth recipes are recipe #217620 #217620, recipe #135453 #135453, recipe #397862 #397862 and recipe #214220 #214220 with meat options. Combine any or all parts of these recipes for your own broth creation if you like."

    Great broth and so easy - cleaning the baking tray once you're all done probably takes the longest active time! The rest of the time you're sitting back and waiting. The colour of the broth is really rich and dark, very tasty, love the turnip flavour. I made exactly as written except for being short 1 tomato - then I added about 2 tsp of salt to the whole end product (8cups), and it tastes great. I think it's destined for a special stew or soup this weekend. Thx for the introduction, I like this method a lot!

    Oh, wow, is this ever decadent! I could eat this all by itself! As Deb said, it is so worth the time to roast the veggies! Yum! Thanks so much for sharing this one. Made for Top Favourites of 2009 Tag.

    Oh this is so worth the time. Roasting the veggies gives this stock both a beautiful rich color and a even richer and fuller taste. Made as written which yielded 8 cups of stock. This is a great stock to keep on hand. Thanks so much for the post.


<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!! I have stepped in 'fresh' gum a couple of times!!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
