I always see the vegetable broth cartons in the supermarket shelves and get tempted to buy those. But it somehow didn't feel right to me to buy it ready made when we could make it at home. With the convenience of a pressure cooker, preparing the broth is just a breeze! This sure adds lot of flavor to the soups or stews. Since we are beginning to enjoy soups for dinner these days, I am sure this broth would come in handy. I am sure this is the right thing to do specifically on Earth Day :) [I wish everyday be treated as Earth Day]

Homemade Vegetable broth


Yellow Onions, sliced 1/2 cup 
Carrots, Peeled and Sliced 1 cup
Celery, sliced 1/2 cup
Garlic, sliced 1 Tbsp
Potato, cut into 1-inch chunks 1 cup
Bay Leaves 2
Peppercorns 1 tsp

Parsley / Coriander Leaves, Chopped 3 Tbsp [I used coriander leaves]
Water 8 cups
Method Of Preparation -
Cook all the ingredients in a pressure cooker or bring to a boil over high heat in a stock pot. (I cooked in the pressure cooker.)

If cooking over the stove, simmer and cook for 2 hours.

Strain and discard solids. [I chose not to discard, so mashed the vegetables and made extra broth/paste to use up in soup]

Cool and refrigerate for up to 3 days. (I froze the broth for further use.)

Preparation Time - 30-40 min
Makes 8-10 cups
