I always have vegetable broth in my pantry, because it is one ingredient I use quite often. It is pretty amazing how much flavor a little bit of vegetable broth can add to a recipe. The simple broth is savory, complex, and seriously tasty.

You may have used vegetable broth to make soup, but you are about to discover just how much more this one ingredient can do! While I will always love Instant Pot bone broth and soups made with chicken broth, vegetable broth may just be my favorite type of broth to use.
