Vegetable Stock Concentrate

This is a must in every fridge.  Thermomix makes this job super easy, quick and with no fuss.......
You can use this in soups, casseroles, risotto's, anything that calls for stock......
Saves stacks of money on purchasing stock at the supermarket not to mention avoiding the additives and flavour enhancers.......

200g celery cut into chunks
2 carrots cut into chunks
1 onion, peeled and halved
1 tomato, halved
1 zucchini, roughly cut
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 bay leaf
few leaves basil, sage and rosemary (optional)
1 bunch parsley (small)
100g rock salt
1 tbsp oil
Chop all vegetables for 10 seconds - Speed 6
Add salt and oil and cook at varoma temperature for 20 minutes - Speed 1
Pulverise by slowly turning dial slowly up to Speed 9 - 1 minute
Store in jars in fridge, keeps for up to 6 months.  
1 heaped Tablespoon in 1 litre of water is enough to make 1 litre of stock
