Heat oil in pan, saute the onions and garlic for a min, then add the rest of the veggies and saute it for another 1-2 min.Then add parsley,salt and pepper.

In another bowl heat 1 litre water and these above mixture to the water and let it boil until the water becomes half.Then take it off the stove and let if cool.

After it cools stain the water from the vegetable broth and fill it into a ice tray...freeze it and store them in a container.

Note 1: You can add any other vegetables(leek,celery,peas) and other herbs(thyme,basil,cilantro etc) too according to your choice.

love your detailed recipe- plus the freezing option would work well for me since having all those veggies together at hand is not possible all the time.
