Making vegetable stock is easy and you can use a variety of vegetables to your taste.  We have found that the combinations listed in our vegetable stock give a nice flavour to any recipe.  If you don’t have all the ingredients on hand you could substitute others or increase the volume on some of the other vegetables you do have.

  • 1 onion – peeled, rinsed, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic – peeled, rinsed, crushed
  • 1 bunch parsley – washed
  • 2 bay leaves
