Homemade Vegetable Stock


Vegetable stock is essential ingredient while making soups and gravies which enhance the taste of recipe. It’s really interesting and easy recipe. Even you can found vegetable stock at grocery store in cubes or powder form. But I prefer homemade vegetable stock without preservatives which is good for health and food both.

You can save the leftover vegetable’s chunks and scraps in zip bag in freezer. Making stock at home is very simple, you have to just clean and chop the leftover vegetables or vegetable scraps, add some herbs and whole spices, cover with water. Bring to boil and cook on simmer for about an hour. Drain the liquid and cool completely.

You can store the stock in ice cube form or glass bottle. You can use vegetable stock in making soup, pulao, gravies and more recipes.
