1 cup vegetable stock

3 tablespoons (1 1/2 oz.) unsalted butter

  1. Put 1/4 cup of the water in a large pot and add the carrots, celery, parsnips, rutabaga, turnip and zucchini. Steam until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the broccoli, cauliflower, stock, remaining 1/2 cup of water, and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium heat. Cook about 15 to 20 minutes.
