Health Rating
This broth is just right as a base for many vegetarian soups. Add in vegetable scraps from the fridge if you have any! Great way to clean out the fridge.


8 medium Carrots (peeled)
2 large White onion (peeled)
6 large stalk(s) Celery
2 medium leek(s) Leek (trimmed & thoroughly washed)
4 small potato Sweet potato (scrubbed, but not peeled)
1 bunch Parsley, fresh (coarsely chopped)
4 tsp Thyme, fresh (or 2 teaspoons dried)
2 leaf Bay leaf
2 tsp Sea salt, fine (or more to taste)
2 tsp Peppercorn (whole)
16 cup Water, filtered


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 hours. 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.
