  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Place onions in pot and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until very tender and golden brown.
  2. Mix celery root, potato peels, carrots, mushrooms and squash into pot. Season with salt. Continue cooking 45 minutes or until vegetables are very tender and golden brown.
  3. Pour water into pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain out the solids, taste for sufficient salt and voila! Your stock!


  • Notes
  • You can saute a few onions and garlic, add the stock, a couple of bags of frozen peas, a couple of mint leaves, blend it up, add a touch of cream, and a highly elegant and lovely bright green soup is on its way to your tummy.
  • Many types of vegetables may be used to prepare the stock. Things to avoid are broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage -- you get the picture.

Excellent idea! Thank you. I now save all my cooking water from various veggies in one container in the freezer and use it to make this stock. Very flavorful.

This recipe worked well for me. This was my first try at making my own Veggie Stock. I wanted a higher yield of broth so I doubled the water and added more salt, it seemed to turned out great. ...

Great flavors. Now I can "go green" and recycle all my veggie peelings. Thanks for the post!

Thank you, after reading this-I collected my veggies and put them in the crockpot..the next time, I will brown the onions in olive oil first. In my stock- I had lots of carrots, celery, parsley,...

Great stock, thank you!

This produced a very nice stock. Ignore the typo error where it says the original recipe yields "1-1/2 quarts". The only liquid ingredient here is 1 quart (or litre) of water, so once you've let...
