About The Recipe

We have made so many different versions of this broth. It always seemed to just taste like water and we just weren’t happy. Broths need to be flavorful to create a great base for so many dishes.

So, we wiped the slate. Sautéing veggies just wasn’t working for us. So, we decided to try roasting them and it WORKED!

Not only is it LESS effort, it allows the vegetables to really release all their delicious flavors and let this broth really shine!

Instructions

In a large bowl, combine all vegetables with olive oil.

Dump the vegetables onto a sheet pan and spread them out. Place in a 350 degree oven and roast for thirty minutes. Make sure to stir them around occasionally!

Now, combine the water, roasted vegetables, and herbs in a stock pot. Let cook for about 30 minutes, or until the broth has reduced by half.

Stain our the vegetables and now your broth is ready to be used!

How To Store

If you don’t intend on using your vegetable broth right away, you need a way to store it! Make sure you let it cool first, but I recommend storing it in 1 cup measurements in a freezer safe ziploc. This makes for easy measuring when your using it to cook later on!
