http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/simple_vegetable_broth.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2011

This very easy broth is just right as a base for many vegetarian soups. Recipe by Anna Thomas for EatingWell

About 3 quarts (12 cups) | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Chop carrots, onions, celery and leeks into 1- to 2-inch chunks; leave the potatoes whole. Combine the vegetables with the remaining ingredients in a soup pot or stock pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and simmer for 1 hour. Strain the broth through a colander, then once more through a fine sieve. If the broth tastes weak, pour it back into the pot and simmer until reduced to a flavor you prefer, 20 to 30 minutes more.
