Inspirational recipe #1 – Vegetable stock
Ok, I know vegie stock doesn’t sound really all that inspiring – but the most awesome thing about it – and chicken stock too – which I will post in coming days – is that it can be the foundation to make many fantastic dishes – vegetarian risotto – curries, soups and much, much more. I actually penned this recipe for my brother, who recently took over a fruit and veg shop on the Surf Coast called Anglesea Fruitz.
Now if you want to go somewhere and be inspired by fresh produce and amazing gourmet stuff including olive oil, awesome pasta, the most amazing yogurt on the planet (I’m not joking!!) – then this is definitely a place to stop by – fill your basket and go home and have some fun in the kitchen. It can be found at the Geelong end of the shopping strip in Anglesea – which is at the start of the Great Ocean Road, Victoria Australia. Here is the website to learn more about Anglesea – it truly is a beautiful seaside town and the gateway to many other natural wonders of the world – including the Twelve Apostles
Ok, so onto the recipe!! The best thing about it is it is simply, healthy, delicious and you can freeze it for future use. Normally I’m not a big fan of freezing, but this works really well 🙂
There is also no need to peel any of the ingredients and only very rough chopping is needed as the vegetables are strained away later, leaving behind only their natural goodness.
