Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

A small can or two of mushrooms sounds good. And even though it doesn't have meat (except the broth) a little sliced kielbasa? Some garlic and as one other person comments, onion.

It did not have much taste. Needs something. Perhaps onion?? I used sodium-free beef broth and added no additional salt. Maybe that's why.


Is there anything that good be used as a substitute for the broth for a vegetarian or vegan recipe?

You can substitute the beef broth with vegetable broth.

vegetable broth?

It will give a more tomato profile to your broth, but vegetable juice (e.g. V-8) makes a good substitution as well.
