Healthy homemade vegetable broth recipe. When a vegetable soup or stew calls for vegetable broth, it should be an intensely flavored alternative to chicken and beef broth. For nutrition value, flavor, and color, I’ve added all the vegetables unpeeled to the pot and slowly simmered the broth, uncovered, over low heat.
