COOKING FLAVOUR BOMB HOME MADE ALTERNATIVE VEGETABLE STOCK

I am not a fan of using stock cubes in my cooking, however when I am cooking  for other people or cooking recipes that are bland with little or no flavour of its own, I like to add my home made alternative vegetable stock which is really a simple blend of  vegetables, a little salt, herbs and peppers I make to keep in ice cube trays in the freezer for when I need them. My favourite vegetables for making a nice home made vegetable stock is aubergines. Aubergine naturally adds a really characterful flavour to cooking so it is my number one choice when I make these little food flavour bombs.  Tomatoes, onion and chilli also gives a very nice flavour.

With traditional stock making, you will cook your vegetables and create a fluid broth but with these food flavour bomb stock, you only need to add as much water to allow it to blend to a smooth consistency inside the blender without overworking your blenders motor.  You have to aim for a thick puree, so that you can add them to mashed recipes also or to home made baby food.
