 Deborah Madison writes that, unlike meat stock, vegetable stock doesn't
 benefit from hours of cooking.  After about 40 minutes of simmering, the
 vegetables have yielded all of their flavor.
 
 Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
 
 In large bowl toss together vegetables, garlic and olive oil.  Spread
 mixture evenly on large baking sheet.  Roast in preheated oven, stirring
 every 10 minutes, until browned, about 40 minutes.
 
 Transfer roasted vegetables to large soup pot and add remaining ingredients
 except for soy sauce.  Bring to boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover pot and
 simmer 40 minutes.  Strain stock, pressing out as much liquid as possible
 from vegetables.  Add soy sauce for additional flavor, if desired.  Use
 stock immediately or cover and refrigerate.  Makes 6 cups.
