Vegetable Stock Recipe

imageVegetable Stock- Flavorful liquid prepared with vegetables like onion, garlic, carrot, celery, bay leaves and peppercorns.

Usually, raw vegetables are added for making vegetable stock but I have sauteed vegetables just for 2 minutes before adding water. It enhanced aroma as well as flavor of vegetable stock. As I am writing this post,simmering vegetables are producing a magnificent aroma in my kitchen and I am so eager to make soup using this stock.

I will be soon posting a few soup recipes. So, storing vegetable stock in your refrigerator will bring you one step closer for preparing hot soups for this chilling weather.

You can store vegetable stock in refrigerator for 3-4 days.
