I keep posting recipes for soup, and saying that you can use homemade stock, but could never remember to take pictures of making the stock to post about it! Well, I finally remembered, and here it is (well, the making of veggie stock, at least!).
Homemade Veggie Stock
As far as choosing good veggies for a stock, some are stand-outs.
Mushrooms add a deep, earthy flavour, carrots give it some sweetness, and celery has a peppery taste that spices up a stock. Cutting everything up can help release some of the flavours, but I generally just throw all my frozen (or need to get out of the fridge) veggies into the pot as is, and let it really simmer down. That gets most of the flavours out.
Making your own stock is simple, requires no real recipe, helps use up veggies that may have normally just been thrown away. Also, it is much better for you than the MSG laden stuff you generally find pre-made (or in bouillon, or powder form) in the grocery store. All good things in my book!
