This recipe is super flexible. I try to use fresh vegetable scraps from whatever was cooked recently--broccoli stems, the ends of carrots or onions, greens from carrots or other veggies. Some other suggestions for added veggies include: parsnips, tomatoes, leeks, mushrooms, celeriac, broccoli, peppers, turnips, and fennel. Add chicken or beef bones if desired.
"...basic share was plenty to feed two adults on a mostly vegetarian diet, sometimes quite full, with plenty to share with other friends ... greatest benefit of all was having produce in our home that was so fresh, it would last for weeks"
