After searching high and low and finding NO Vegetable Broth in any of the stores in our area, LIGHTBULB, it's time to make my own.
So basically, it's easier than I thought! You can place all kinds of scraps of vegetables - ends, cut up portions, (uncooked) leftovers, whatever in a pot with a lid, 8 cups of water, bring to a boil, simmer for an hour, and strain out the vegetables to leave - voila! - Vegetable Broth!
You can follow a recipe - which, I do both - but here's one such recipe:
2 stalks of celery - chopped
1 potato - chopped in large chunks
3 garlic cloves
3 bay leaves
1 tbsp soy sauce
8 cups of water
salt & pepper
Put in pot with lid, bring to a boil, simmer for one hour, strain the vegetables out, and you have vegetable broth.
This can be used in recipes, gravies, base for soups, etc.
