  • Vegetable broth is a simple recipe; it can be prepared earlier and freezed as ice cubes, to be defrosted whenever required. To prepare vegetable broth, boil water (around four cups) in a large pot and add cruciferous vegetables like onions, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, garlic and celery and boil the mixture for around 10 minutes on a high flame to let all the nutrients from the vegetables seep out. Discard the vegetables and freeze the broth in ice cube trays. Keep it in glass jar to use it within a week.
