In a suitably sized saucepan pour water, put on fire. First Cast carrots, since It is brewed longer than other vegetables.
Meanwhile, chop the zucchini, green beans cut into several pieces. If you use frozen vegetables, defrost them not necessarily enough to douse with warm water and remove the remnants of the ice.
When the carrots will be ready, let down into the pan the remaining vegetables.
Bring broth to a boil with the vegetables, salt and pepper arch, I still threw a pinch of oregano. Boil for about 1 minute, remove from heat and let it brew for five minutes.
