How To Make No Sodium Vegetable Stock

Many people are on low sodium diets. Canned Vegetable Stocks can be very high in sodium. This easy recipe made with vegetable scraps and cast-offs is a great way to make no sodium vegetable stock!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 4-8 hours

Ingredients:
1 gallon bag of Frozen Vegetable Peels and Stalks
24 cups Water
2-3 Bay Leaves
6-8 Peppercorns

Directions:


• As you cut, dice, chop fresh vegetables, take the scraps and place them in a gallon size bag in the freezer. When you fill a bag or two, you are ready to make a no sodium vegetable stock.
• In a large pot, add 12 cups of water per gallon sized freezer bag.
• Add frozen vegetable scraps.
• Make note on the outside of the pot with a ruler where the water level is, then add 12 more cups of water – you are going to reduce that water back down to 12 cups, so it is an important notation.


• Add bay leaves.
• Add peppercorns.
• Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for 4-6 hours or until half the liquid in the pot cooks off from your original mark.


• After the water is reduced by half, remove the large vegetable pieces (these can be composted at this point).
• Strain the leftover liquid through a colander.
• Strain the colander liquid through a chinois or fine mesh strainer.
• Strain again, this time lining the chinois or fine mesh with a cheese cloth.
• Portion out strained No Sodium Vegetable Stock for freezing or immediate use.

Makes 12 cups No Sodium Vegetable Stock

How To Make No Sodium Vegetable Stock. Many people are on low sodium diets. Canned Vegetable Stocks can be very high in sodium. This easy recipe made with vegetable scraps and cast-offs is a great way to make no sodium vegetable stock!


Notes:

This recipe makes 12 cups of vegetable stock per full one gallon bag of vegetable scraps.
Hubby always has a bag of vegetable scraps in the freeze. We just keep adding to it as he scrapes carrots, cores peppers, onion skins, etc. Just remember that your stock will take on the flavor of the vegetables, so don’t go too crazy with anything that has a very strong taste, or a lot of green.

These days, Hubby generally uses a pressure cooker to make his No Sodium Vegetable Stock. It takes about an hour that way!

Zucchini Soup Recipe

Zucchini Soup Recipe. A delicious, easy to make zucchini soup that makes great use of fresh zucchini. If you are looking for a zucchini soup recipe that is not like all the others, this is the recipe for you!


Zucchini Soup Recipe

We always have a large quantity of zucchini in the summer, especially when we belong to a CSA. Now I normally like my zucchini with chocolate chips in a bread, or deep fried so that it in no way resembles a vegetable. To say I was skeptical about this Zucchini Soup Recipe is a gross understatement. Buuuuuut, I did indeed enjoy it! Score another one for the hubby!


If you have high-temperature bleu cheese, by all means use that. The zucchini soup pictured used blue cheese crumbles purchased at the grocery store.

If you are looking for other zucchini recipes, you may want to try this wonderful Stuffed Zucchini Recipe or this fun Zucchini Pizza Boats Recipe. If you prefer your zucchini on the sweet side, this delicious and unusual Zucchini Carrot Bread Recipe might fill the bill, or perhaps a more traditional Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe is more to your liking?
