What is the difference between vegetable broth and vegetable stock?

I don't think there's a difference for veggies. Typically when you make stock you boil the bones with the veggies, etc... Obviously with a vegetable based stock/broth there are no bones to use.

Stock is usually the building block and broth the the final product, but for vegetables I can't see much difference. Plus general misusage would obscure what the recipe was really calling for.

Here is a wonderful vegetable broth from Anne Thomas which she goes on to use for soup.

Stock usually means the use of bones, like veal or chicken stock, to make an intense liquid base you probably wouldn't eat on it's own. I think a broth (veg, or say, chicken) would be a clear simple soup, ready to eat. So, really, the prep for a vegetable 'stock' and a veg broth wouldn't be that different, since the richness and gelatin from the bones wouldn't enter in...
Clear as...stock, right!

I found this method interesting for making a veggie stock. And using Agar Agar to clarify and replace some of the 'mouth feel' you would get from bones.
