Veggie Stock for Healthy Veins

Vegetables, and a pot labelled SOUP

HOW TO MAKE 

INGREDIENTS

Makes roughly 3 quarts

Onions (tops, bottoms, and skins)

Celery (tops and bottoms)

Carrots (tops, bottoms, and skins)

Mushrooms (stems)

Garlic (tops, bottoms, and skins)

Potatoes (tops, bottoms, and skins)

Parsley (stems)

You can add many other vegetable scraps (think sweet!) – i.e. corn cobs, winter squash, zucchini, and other squash, beet greens, fennel, chard, lettuce, parsnips, green beans, pea pods, bell peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, asparagus, and herbs like dill, thyme, parsley, cilantro, and basil.

PREPARATION

Remove the tops/bottoms/skins/stems from any vegetables you are preparing (avoid vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, or cauliflower as they will add a bitter taste to your stock) and place them in a ziplock bag – they can stay frozen up to 6 months.

Continue like this until bag is full.

Dump bag into pot and fill ¾ of the pot (or until scraps just start to float) with water.

Bring water to a boil and then let it simmer for at least 30 minutes.

Strain water out of stock.

Refrigerate stock up to 4 days, or freeze up to 3 months.
