Slow cooker vegetable broth

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Canola oil
1 large Onion; chopped
1 large Carrot; diced
10 cups Water
3 cups Coarsely chopped green leek tops
1 \N Celery stalk; sliced
1 \N Turnip; diced
1 \N Dried mushroom
¼ cup Parsley; stems and leaves
3 \N Fresh thyme sprigs
1 \N Bay leaf
2 \N Whole cloves
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables begin to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Place in a slow cooker with water, leek tops, celery, turnip, mushroom and seasonings. Simmer on high 6 to 8 hours, or overnight, until vegetables are very soft. Strain off stock and discard vegetables.

Variation: Instead of using leeks, you can use a combination of 2 or more of the following: loosely packed spinach leaves and stems, lettuce leaves, tomato skins, fresh mushroom stems, or diced parsnips along with some additional chopped celery and carrot to equal 3 cups vegetables.

Makes about 8 cups.

Slow cookers and long, slow simmering makes a good broth. A quick browning of onions and carrots intensifies this stock's hearty flavor.
