I am not vegetarian, but I need to ask people who eat plant based diets about homemade vegetable broth. I made some today my Instant Pot from trimmings I had saved in containers I kept in the freezer. I did us some onion peels and green onion trimmings along with other veggie trimmings, including mushroom stems.

The broth seems fine, if a little oniony in flavor. It is a medium amber in color. I will use this. But I wonder about getting broth with more flavor, and less of a pronounced onion flavor.

How do you make good vegetable broth?

Thanks in advance.

We use this recipe from Minimalist Baker with good results.
Because we use varied amounts of what is on hand it tastes different each time but this is a good guide recipe.

I like the idea of adding nutritional yeast. I did add peppercorns, bay leaf and herbs to my broth. I should have dumped some chopped garlic in, but I did not think of it. I can certainly squeeze some tomato paste in as well.

As I said ours is a bit different each time, but we haven't had a clunker yet. Put in more of any flavors you like and omit what you don't like, it won't let you down. So much better than store bought!

Do you put in green or red pepper trimmings?

Yes but a little goes a long way, although I occasionally will throw in a fresh roasted red pepper for a flavor bump.

I sometimes make my own veggie broth, no set recipe, just wang everything in a pot, add bay leaf & simmer for a few hours. I try to keep some veggie trimmings in the freezer for this. So it tastes different every time, depending on what veggies I had. However, recently I bought a jar of vegetable base, so I if I like it, I probably won't bother with my own broth any more. I usually freeze it in half cup portions.

I am also looking for a vegetable broth recipe. I have been using organic imagine vegetable broth for years, but now I think they changed their recipe. It looks like water and even tastes like water. Is this something you make on the stove or do you need to have a crock pot?

In case anyone is looking for it, Wal Mart sells a decent vegetable broth (it's in a carton with a pour top.)
