Back to Basics: Vegetable Stock


There’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of homemade soup especially when made with homemade stock. It’s simple to make and the ingredients are inexpensive to buy. Best of all, you can make large quantities, freeze it and have it ready for use it in soups, beans, sauces, or for any dish that you want to add more flavor to. Here’s my recipe for vegetable stock.

VEGETABLE STOCK 

PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES TOTAL TIME: 45 MINUTES MAKES:  8 CUPS

Ingredients

4 carrots, unpeeled, quartered
1 large onion, unpeeled, quartered
1 large leek, sliced
2 potatoes, unpeeled, halved
2 celery stalks with leaves, roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves
20 sprigs flat-leaf parsley with stems
Kosher salt
A few black peppercorns

Directions

Rinse all of the vegetables. Then combine all ingredients in a stockpot with 12 cups of water. Simmer gently uncovered for 30 - 40 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Strain the entire contents of the pot through a colander and discard the solids. Let cool before refrigerating or freezing.

Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 6 months.

Back To The Table




What an exciting, rewarding day. For months, I've been the lead of a project to create a cookbook encompassing the recipes from my co-workers. At FamilyCare we make up a diverse population with rich heritage and culture. My passion being food and cooking brought to mind a cookbook sharing our family recipes. Last year, at our holiday party I shared the idea with the president of the company. He loved the idea and invited me to his office to further discuss my idea.

Fast forward >>> Today, after months of hard work from the cookbook committee and others the first edition FamilyCare Cookbook "Back
 To The Table" was in the hands of employees right in time for the holidays. Each employee received a FREE copy. **At this time cookbooks are not for sale to the public.

Grateful. Honored. Proud.
