There was a very wise woman who used to post on the vaccines form; her advice to moms whenever one of their kids was sick was to make them homemade vegetable soup, because of the importance of those minerals in the diet. I also save my veggie scraps (I tend to throw out the ones that are higher in oxalic acid, which blocks minearal absorption) and, when the bag is full enough, toss them in a pot of boiling water for an hour or two. Use sea salt when you do this; it helps to remove minerals from the veggies and put them in the stock. The remains make great compost.
NT has a few veggie stock recipies, check out Dr. Connoley's vegetable soup, Bieler Broth, and posassium broth. All good and very nourishing.
I use veggie broth the same way I do bone broth. To cook soups, sauces, or soaked grains. And often just to drink. I can't keep broth in our house, we go through it like crazy, so I tend to just grab whatever we have on hand and use it when I need it.
