I actually think this is one of the most important things you can make as it is the base for healthy cooking and without a base then nothing works!

This is the stock that I use in place of salt or stock cubes. I use it to cook soup, rice, stir-fry even sweet dishes that require a pinch of salt.

One teaspoon is equivalent to one stock cube.

Now there is no set ingredient list for this. I change this recipe every time I make it depending on which veggies I have.  This is why the colour can be so varied also - it has been green, brown and also bright red.

2 non negotiables for me are:

1 -  Use organic veggies to make stock - it is important to not have pesticides and chemicals in your 'base'

2 -  Store in glass jar not in plastic. The salt encourages leaching of chemicals from the plastics so glass is much better - especially as it may be stored for an extended period.

Ingredients

 1 onion
 2 cloves of garlic
 1 carrot chopped
 2 sticks celery
 1 small zucchini chopped
 1 small beetroot
 1 tomato
 4 mushrooms
 1 leak
 1 red capsicum
 1/3 cup broccoli
 1 cup of spinach, silverbeet or 1/2 cup kale (no stalks)
 handful of fresh basil
 2 sprigs of rosemary
 1/2 cup fresh parsley
 150 g himalayan sea salt or murray river salt
 3 tbs olive or macadamia oil works too

Okay - here is how you do it!

Directions

1

If using a thermomix place everything except salt and oil into bowl and chop 10 seconds on speed 6 then add salt and oil and cook for 20 minutes speed 1 on reverse.

2

If  not using a thermo just add all veggies into food processor and chop until a chunky paste

3

Put into a pot with lid only slightly ajar add salt, oil and a tiny amount of filtered water and cook for 30 minutes at a low heat stirring often.

4

When cooked remove from heat and blend again until smooth paste.
