If you look at ingredients and calories for commercially produced organic vegetable broths they are all around 15-20 calories per cup and use water as the main ingredient (compairing to organic removes all of the chemical additives you may see in non-organic). These do contain a small amount of oil though (a small enough amount for there to be less than 1gm of fat per serving) so yours may be slightly lower in calories. I'd still say that it'd be accurate to expect your broth to have between 10-20 calories per cup.

I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any calories in homemade vegetable broth. I put everything into the SparkRecipes nutrition calculator, and it said there are around 20 calories in one cup. But I make my broth with water, onions, carrots, celery, and garlic, and I strain out all the vegetables once it's ready. Shouldn't that lower the calorie count to nearly zero?
