    Not a review for this recipe, although can't wait to try it out. Just wanted to comment regarding the suggestions for use feeding the veggies to dogs after boiling. Onions are toxic for dogs, so if you are feeding leftover veggies, which is great use, just make sure you remove the onion.

    I eat the vegetables! I put some good olive oil, salt, pepper, and some pumpkin seeds. Very delicious...in fact, sometimes I make the broth just so I can eat the veggies!

    Anytime you make broth, be it vegetable or bone, you "discard vegetables". I am unsure what all the fuss is about, you have not wasted them you have cooked them to impart flavour on your broth. Do you feel bad discarding the vanilla bean pod, the fresh rosemary, the cinnamon stick, cloves, etc. from other recipes? Let's not persecute Martha for something that is done in every kitchen all of the world on most likely a daily basis.

    Wonderful and flavorful broth that I will use from now on in lieu of chicken broth. It is a bit time-consuming, but the quantity and quality of the end-product is well-worth the effort. I'm keeping this in my recipe book!

    Before you do this recipe, make sure you have a really big pot. I got the biggest one I have and couldn't fit all the vegetables in it. :(

    One other comment....I used a small amount of the leftover vegetables from this soup to put into the Broccoli Soup in lieu of the avocado that it calls for. It didn't take much. That recipe is also wonderful.

    WOW! I just made this broth. This is so amazing. I normally don't cook, so this was a big deal for me. And the taste....WOW! I can't believe how good this tastes. I added a bit of pepper and I only added a tiny bit of salt, so I was expecting it to be bland. Wow...am I surprised! Oddly, I felt like I was nurturing myself while it was cooking. The aroma reminded me of being at Grandma's house! I can't wait to make the broccoli soup next. I am stunned, and loving every low calorie minute!

    The aroma from this broth is awesome. I actually did throw the veggies away and after reading these posts about the ideas to save them, I feel bad....

    The aroma from this broth was amazing. Needs salt to be eaten alone, but in the recipes its fine.

    Super wasteful if you throw away the vegtables,and the broth itself needs a LOT of salt to taste good. We ended up storing the veggies then heated them up and used salt, pepper flakes and avocado to give it some more flavor (since its mostly boiled sweet potato) there was so much of it that its lasted us 4 days eating it as lunch!
