Chicken stock is an important ingredient for tasty cooking. All the most delicious recipes rely on a good chicken stock for success. However most chicken stocks are prepared using various part of the chicken body and some are unhealthy to be consumed. I have seen chicken stock that is either too oily or contains parts with level of cholesterol. For health purpose, I tried out vegetable stock and surprisingly the taste was really good. After a few testing, I would like to share out to everyone this great recipe.
Prepare 3 carrots, 2 celery stick, 2 onions and 2 tomatoes. We would also need 10 mushroom stalks. For additional aroma, prepare 2 bay leaves, 1 sprig of thyme and 4 sprigs of parsley. Lastly, we need 10 black peppercorns for additional sweetness.
1. Start by cutting the vegetable and then put all of them in a large saucepan. Next, tie the bay leaves together with thyme, parsley and peppercorns in a piece of muslin, then add it into the saucepan.
2. Prepare 2 liters of cold water and pour it into the saucepan. Heat it up until it boil then slowly bring it to simmer. Continue with the simmer process for about 1hr 30minutes. Not to forget, do not cover it while simmering to avoid over spilling.
3. Once done, strain the soup into a large bowl and leave it to cold. Once done, you can freeze it so that you can use it at a later date.
