Take stock of chicken and vegetable trimmings
Make your own stock from leftover bits to enliven any one-pot meal
The distinction is not as important as the flavour and the health benefits. Broth is both food and medicine, and if you think you are too busy to add homemade stock to your life, you are wrong.
If you can spend an evening watching TV (and I know you do that once in a while, so don’t try to lie to me about that) you can make stock with a 15-minute investment of your time.
Stock makes sauces taste better, gravies richer and enlivens virtually any one-pot meal from chili, gumbo and stew to osso buco and short ribs.
