“This is my absolute favorite vegetable broth. It's the broth I use in all of my soup recipes. The nutritional yeast is essential to its flavor and color. This is a variation of the recipe found in The Chicago Diner cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large pot with 3-4 quarts of water.
  2. Cover and simmer about 1 hour.
  3. Strain.
  4. Variations:
  5. You can make this recipe in the slow cooker, which I almost always do, on low for 6 hours or on high for 4.
  6. This broth freezes very well. Keep it on hand in different sized portions for any recipe that calls for stock. Simply defrost in microwave for a few minutes before adding to another recipe.
  7. You can add more vegetables and herbs, if you wish, but make sure to add more water if you increase the amount of veggies.
  8. This recipe will make about 16 cups of stock. Easily double the recipe for more.
