I Quit Sugar - Leftovers Veggie Stock

This stock is the epitome of simple. Use whatever veggie offcuts you have lying around! Subtle additions like lemon and extra garlic will give the stock a nice little boost of flavour.  

Servings: 8
Preparation: 5 mins
Cooking: 8 hours

Ingredients

  • 4 cups vegetable scraps (think celery ends and leaves, onion trimmings, carrot tops).
  • Cold water, approximately 8 cups.
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  • Leftover herbs (optional).
  • 1 used lemon, halved (optional).

Directions

In the slow cooker:

1. Toss all ingredients into the slow cooker insert. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

2. Strain stock, discard veggies scraps and allow to cool. Store in 1/2 cup portions in the freezer.

On the stove top:

1. Put all ingredients in a large pot or saucepan. Cover ingredients completely with water. Bring stock to the boil then reduce to a simmer for 4 hours. Skim off any impurities every hour or so.
