Over the years I've lost my taste for most meat although I do eat red meat occasionally. Haven't eaten chicken in many years however and recently began wondering about giving up chicken broth and replacing it with vegetable broth. CI did an evaluation of chicken broth and basically declared all commmercial brands substandard. Can't remember where (MS?) but read a tip about using the ends of asparagus spears to make veg broth which I did, adding celery, onion and carrots. I make lots of soups and stews all year round. What do you think about using veg instead of chicken as the base? Will there even be a noticable difference? I think not and I'm ready to make the switch. I'd love your take on it, along with any tips on making good veg broth. Thanks!
