Vegetable stock

Does anyone actually prepare vegetable stock in this way? www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/vegetablestock_90306 i.e. boil veg and then throw them in the bin? Seems like such a waste! And makes meals expensive.

If you do, how often do you do it? For your every meal/soup that requires it, or just for special meals for weekends, dinner parties and so forth.

Thank you.

I have a ziploc bag in the freezer into which I put things like broccoli/cauliflower stalks, the bottom bit off celery, carrot tops etc and when it's full I stick them all in the slow cooker with a litre of hot water and leave it simmering all day. It makes lovely stock which I use yo make Jamie Oliver's vegan gravy, delish!

Sounds like a great idea Pointlessfan!
