Homemade vegetable stock always tastes better, preservative free and cheaper than canned one in stores. The use of vegetable stock can adds flavor and nutrition to many recipes. Making a basic vegetable stock recipe is really simple but it is time consuming. All you have to do is add some vegetables to water, after about an hour of simmering, just strain out the vegetables and the resulting liquid is vegetable stock. Onion, garlic, celery and carrot are the base ingredients to vegetable stock preparation. You can customize this vegetarian stock, by adding any fresh herbs like oregano or dill or basil. Feel free to add vegetable trimmings, such as carrot peelings, potato peelings and other discards.
Basic Vegetable stock is an all-purpose stock that can be used as a soup base or to make sauces, risottos or pilafs. Another variation of making vegetable stock, is to roast the vegetables at 425º F for 45 mins before adding them to water. Regarding salting to stock, in addition to little salt, I used splash of tamari because it adds a nice flavor and a color. Try this homemade stock recipe at home and let me know how you liked it.
