The vegetable stock video shows many exotic veggies like parsley, leek etc. which are not easily available where I live. Any substitute you can suggest to the stock?

sorry for replying so can boil almost all the vegetables like roots, leaves etc for an hour so in enough water with a dash of salt. Cool them completely to room temperature. Strain and use.
