Easy Veg Stock

Making your own stock sounds intimidating - but you've got to try this recipe once and you'll see how easy (and beneficial) it is to make your own stock and know exactly what's in it!

This is a great recipe that can be frozen in ziplock bags or stored in ice-cube trays for a simple splash of flavour in any meal.


  • 1 lemongrass stalk

  • 1 onion

  • 1 full bulb of garlic

  • 1 bulb of ginger

  • 1 bulb/1 tbsp turmeric

  • 4 Carrots

  • 1 bunch celery

  • 1 fennel bulb

  • 1 bunch of thyme

  • 1 small bunch rosemary

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp coriander seeds

  • 3 tsp salt

  • 3L filtered water


Get ready for this one. Roughly, and I mean really roughly chop the veg. Don't peel a thing.

Chuck all the above, including the water, together in a large pot; bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Strain.

That's it!

For some inspiration, make a delicious Chai Chicken Curry or Pumpkin Risotto using this stock!
