Organic Vegetable Broth

What to do with an abundance of vegetables hanging out in your refrigerator? This is really easy to put together, you don't need fancy knife skills or special equipment. A large stockpot, a strainer lined with cheesecloth if you have it, and you're all set. You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. For this batch I used all organic produce: 3 parsnips, 5 celery stalks leaves and all, one leek, 7 carrots, 1 large sweet onion, small bunch parsley, some thyme sprigs, 4 smashed garlic cloves, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. I gave all of this a quick saute in 2 tbsp. olive oil, then covered it with water and simmered until the veggies were tender, approximately 45 minutes. Strained and stored in containers for the week's various recipes.
