White stock not only helps in giving a nice taste to the dish but also when simmered gives an excellent aroma. . . Make sure you do not chop your ingredients too finely. Just halve or quarter them, so the water can reach the inside of the vegetable as well as the outside.

pro tips for basic vegetable white stock

  1. Use fresh, high-quality vegetables to make vegetable stock.
  2. Strain the vegetable stock through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any solids.  
  3. Simmering is a better method for making white vegetable stock than boiling. This is because simmering cooks the vegetables slowly and evenly, which helps to release their flavor and nutrients.
  4. Combine the vegetables in a large pan with water. The amount of water you will need will depend on the amount of vegetables you are using. A good rule of thumb is to use enough water to cover the vegetables by at least 2 inches.
  5. Store white stock in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
