This vegetarian "chicken" broth is incredibly easy to make and tastes great. Use it as a base for any recipe that calls for chicken broth. 


  • 10 cups water
  • 8 oz. Kara's onion, diced
  • 4 oz. Kara's celery, diced
  • 4 Kara's garlic cloves, chopped
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp agave nectar, honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp salt (optional) 

Taste your stock before adding the salt and see if it needs it or not.
Remember, the stock is a base, not a stand-alone.
Adding dried herbs will darken the stock - dried sage, thyme and parsley are traditional "chicken" flavourings.
Dark green vegetables usually do not make good stock.
Stay away from strong flavours like cabbage.
