I tried to make vegetable stock the other day for vegtable soup(daughter is vegetarian), filled a pot full of carrots, peppers, onions, turnips, etc. covered in water, salt and pepper, brought to a boil let slow boil (simmer) for two hours, tasted, and it tasted like boiled water! What am I doing wrong? Should I just buy stock? Pretty expensive for a big pot of soup though! Thanks for any and all advice.
