Frozen Stock Cubes


Over the weekend, I realized that my vegetable scrap box was getting full, so I made some stock.

I also noticed that I had some frozen chicken bones, so I tossed those in and ended up with chicken soup for dinner.

Usually, when I make stock or soup I stash leftovers in freezer safe containers. This time, I reserved some and froze it in an ice cube tray.

Creamy Vegetable Soups

A tip from Mark Bittman: To make a creamy vegetable soup: use three parts liquid (broth, stock, water), two parts vegetables (cooked and pureed), and one part dairy (cream, milk, yogurt, etc.) Root vegetables work well for this, but other vegetables can be used. I heartily recommend celeriac, as it adds a creaminess that is difficult to match. Cooking the vegetables in the stock (or other liquid) will help to ensure that you don't lose any flavor.
