I like using vegetable broth in place of water to bring out more flavors in my recipes. I often pick up a few boxes at the grocery store, but it can get quite expensive at nearly $4 each.
I saved my veggie scraps (including onion and garlic skins) in a plastic container for the last few days.
I filled a pot with water on medium heat until boiling.
Added the scraps, covered and boiled for 30 minutes. You can also add herbs and spices for additional flavor.
I then drained the liquid and cooled it on the counter.
Store in glass jars (or other containers) for up to a week in the refrigerator.
I love simple ideas!
