Classic Vegetable Broth
Few foods have such a positive influence on the body as a homemade vegetable broth. It provides many nutrients with low fat and calories.
Freeze the homemade vegetable stock you don't need immediately in ice cube containers. In this way you always have a small amount in stock for refining sauces and vegetable dishes.
If you have leftover vegetables, carrot peel can be processed into vegetable broth very well, helping you avoid kitchen waste.
