Good Asian-style vegetable stock gives you authentic Asian dishes!

Also, it is so easy to make your own vegetable stock, all you need is to spare some Time! Dice up some vegetables, throw them into a big pot, and pour water in, gently simmer on low heat, and don’t forget to set up a timer. Just let the stove does the work while you comfortably sitting on the couch watching TV. After that, you probably don’t want to buy store-bought stock anymore unless for an emergency.

Vegetables for Asian Vegetable Stock

Vegetables with neutral flavors such as Brown Onion, Carrot, and Celery are most commonly used for vegetable stock. Leek, tomato, fennel bulbs also can be used.

Avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes, pumpkins, and turnips as they will make the stock cloudy. Also, Peas and zucchini, after a long-time of cooking become bitter.

For adding the Asian characteristic, Ginger, Garlic, Spring Onion, Dried Shiitake mushrooms ( not fresh ones), Dried Kelp( or Kombu), and Miso Paste are the key. Especially dried Shiitake mushroom, kelp, and miso paste give the stock a strong Umami flavor!

Try using this Asian-style vegetable stock to make Vegan Pho, Lemongrass Coconut Pumpkin Soup, Seaweed and Tofu Soup, Tomato Enoki Tofu Soup.
