Homemade Vegetable Stock

Categories: Dinner Lunch

This needs to be a staple in everybody’s fridge. Homemade stock adds a powerful punch of flavour to almost any savoury meal. It’s so versatile and is great in both meat and vegetarian meals. Store brought stocks can be full of flavours, colours, preservatives and thickeners. They are also extremely high in sodium (salt). Make your own; it’s simple and it could possibly be the best stock you have ever tasted. Nourishing your body
