Vegetable Stock So Meaty Vegans Think They Are Cheating! Glen struggled with Vegetable stock and vegetable broth recipes, until started filming Chef's for this YouTube series back in 2007. Those Chef's taught him some valuable lessons on creating a rich deeply flavoured vegetable stock vegetable broth recipe.
