Got Veggie Broth?

When was the last time you made Vegetable Broth? That´s what I thought. And how about canned or boxed broth on the shelf? Strike two. Got Veggie Broth? I didn’t think so! Broth is a key ingredient not just in Mexican food, but in so many recipes including soups, sauces, and rice dishes that I would find it impossible not to have at least one bottle in the fridge. Why settle for bouillon cubes when you can have homemade broth where you can be certain of all the ingredients?
