An easy vegetable stock recipe to add your dishes instead of water so you don't dilute your flavors. I don't provide amounts for this recipe, as I tend to just use up whatever I have in the fridge.

Course: Soup
Cuisine: California, French
Servings: 1 Pot
Author: Daniel Peikes
Ingredients
  • Carrots Peeled and roughly chopped
  • Onions Peeled and roughly chopped
  • Celery Roughly chopped
  • Herbs Parsley and dill work nicely
  • Salt and Pepper To taste
Other Optional Ingredients
  • Mushrooms
  • Root Vegetables Such as sweet potato, turnip, and parsnip
Instructions
  1. Place the vegetables in the pot and fill with water until the vegetables covered by 3 inches.

  2. Place the pot over medium heat and bring to a boil. Once at a boil lower the heat and simmer until the water is educed by about 25%.

  3. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Strain out the vegetables and use within a week, or freeze for up to three months. Use to make sauces and soups or to cook rice for improved flavor over using water.
