Roast Vegetable Stock Concentrate

One of the very first things every new TM owner makes is Vegetable Stock Concentrate which is used in place of store bought stock cubes.

Well I've been experimenting with a few different versions, and although this takes slightly longer to make, it definitely produces the best flavour.

2 onions, peeled and halved
1 leek, halved
2 stalks of celery
2 carrots, halved
handful of mushrooms
1 zucchini
1 medium tomato (or a handful of cherry tomatoes)
few sprigs of parsley
20g olive oil
150g rock salt
cracked black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place the vegetables into a baking dish lined with baking paper and roast for 40 minutes or until vegetables are nicely coloured.
  2. Transfer the vegetables into the TM bowl and add parsley. Chop for 10 seconds/speed 6.
  3. Add the salt, pepper and oil and cook for 10 minutes/varoma/speed 1.
  4. Blend for 1 minute/speed 9.
  5. Place into an airtight jar and store in the fridge.


  1. This was the very first thing I made in my TM, 2 months ago.


    I gave half of it to my sister and we're ready for our 2nd batch. Food has never tasted so good.

    Thank all your recipes!!!

    1. Hi Monnie, and thanks for your kind comment. I know this version of VSC is a little more time consuming to make, but I do think the flavour (and rich brown colour) is so much better when the vegetables are roasted first. xx
