Homemade vegetable broth (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan)

Here is a way to make a pot of vegetable broth in less than 1 hour that is great to use when cooking soups, stuffings, and legumes. To keep the broth neutral-flavored, use milder vegetable scraps, like fennel tops, leek tops, onion quarters, and shallot halves; refrain from using broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage; and don’t add salt.

  • olive oil
  • vegetable scraps, chopped (see Note)
  • hot water

In a soup pot over medium heat, warm some olive oil. Add the vegetable scraps and cook until starting to brown. Add hot water to cover by several inches, cover, and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 45 minutes or longer.
