Homemade Vegetable Broth

It’s always a good idea to have some type of broth in your pantry. Chicken, beef, vegetable or seafood broth can be the base of so many amazing dishes but have you ever went into your pantry and realized there was no broth to be found? I have and it stinks. But what if I told you that making your own broth is not only simple but also tastes 100 times better than the stuff you get in the box? It is and today we are making vegetable broth.

The broth will take about 3 hours but most of that time you will be sitting back drinking a beer or a glass of wine. Don’t worry, I don’t judge. You will spend under 10 minutes chopping up your vegetables and sautéing them and then you can sit back while the stove does the rest of the work. Once done and cooled strain the broth and its all done.

Vegetable Broth


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 3 carrots roughly chopped
  • 3 celery stalks roughly chopped
  • 1 tomato quartered
  • 10 parsley sprigs
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast omit if you don’t have any
  • 10 cups water
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp salt & pepper


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add olive oil, carrots, celery, garlic, salt and pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes stirring often

  2. Add water and remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

  3. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and partially cover with lid

  4. Allow to simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Once done allow the broth to cool and then using a strainer pour into another pot.

There you go. Easy vegetable broth that can be the base for so many different recipes. I think I’ll use this for vegetable soup. Thanks for stopping by Life44…Live, laugh, love & learn.
