Stock Concentrate Recipe – Yes I know this ins’t a very exciting recipe, but it is an essential one if you want to use your own stock and know exactly what has gone into it.
It does contain a lot of salt, but it is better than the MSG and other nasties that are in the supermarket stock powders.
I stopped making this for a while, but now that I am back to using my thermomix so much I wouldn’t be without it.
I have also changed some of the veggies from the original recipe, but have found sticking to the original produces a very tasty stock concentrate.
- 200g celery
- 2 carrots
- 1 onion
- 1 tomato
- 1 zucchini
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 bunch parsley
- a few leaves of basil, rosemary and sage
- 150g rock salt
- 1 tablespoon oil
Roughly chop all veggies, then place in thermomix bowl and chop for 10 seconds on speed 6
Add salt and oil then cook for 20 minutes at varoma temperature on speed 1
Mix by slowly turning up the speed dial to speed 6, then pulverise for 1 minute on speed 9
Store in a sterilised jar in the fridge
Use tablespoon quantities instead of stock cubes – eg 1 tablespoon of stock concentrate equals 1 stock cube
