I made a big pan of broth and it's bitter. How do I correct it?

I poked around a bit looking at broth recipes and it seemed they allowed for a bit of improvisation. So I made a pan of broth using all the odds and ends of vegetables I've had in the freezer awhile: onions, garlic, carrots, celery, mushroom stems, parsnip peels & ends, and parsley. Aside from that, all it had in it was water, a bit of salt, and a dozen lentils.
The broth is bitter. There's probably very little need for bitter broth.
I've searched online and failed to find the answer, and Joy of Cooking also didn't mention a solution.
Is there any way to correct the taste?
