I cook a lot of Chinese food, especially Sichuanese food. It’s my go-to for making people dinner, especially since I, being the Stockholm hipster that I am, know many vegetarians and vegans.
However, I’m very lazy. I love cooking Chinese food because it’s often super quick and you’re active all the time. That left me with a problem when it was time to do a nice broth for noodle soup or wok dishes like fish-fragrant tofu. These often required some serious cooking time and as many things you could possibly stuff in a sauce pan. After a couple of tries and some research, I figured out these recipes for good vegetarian broth that comes together very quickly and without thinking too much.
