Homemade Vegetable Stock

Make your own vegetable stock instead of buying it. This allows you to tweak it to fit your tastes.


  • 14 cups water
  • 4 celery stalks with leaves, chopped
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup green cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 12 cloves garlic
  • 10 sprigs of parsley
  • 2 bay leaves


Combine water, celery, cabbage, mushrooms, carrots, garlic, onions, parsley and bay leaves in a large pot or dutch oven over medium high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium and cook for one hour. Then strain through a colander. Press the vegetables against the colander to press out as much juice as possible. Compost the veggies.
