Having a well-stocked spice cabinet is a must for any home cook, especially those who cook with a lot of vegetables. Another easy way to enhance and accentuate the natural flavor of vegetables is using a broth. This mushroom vegetable broth has a smoky, woodsy, and rich flavor without all the salt store-bought broths contain.
