This recipe can be made in advance and frozen. My family normally doubles the batch and freeze half in freezer-friendly containers. This vegetable stock recipe can be used as the basis for great soups such as hot and sour soup or congee.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of water
  • 2 carrots, clean and roughly chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup napa cabbage, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, washed (include the roots)
  • 3 peppercorns

Recipe Steps:

  • In a large stockpot, bring all the ingredients to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes and reduce to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes. Skim the broth from time to time.
  • Strain the broth and discard ingredients.
