I made this spicy, gingery, garlicky veggie stock for my best friend Gigi. Born in Texas, we both love spicy foods and she asked me for something to give her dishes a “kick”! Here it is! Not only does this stock tickle your tastebuds, it’s full of nutrients to make you feel great. Use this stock whenever a recipe calls for vegetable stock, or add vegetables to the stock and simmer until cooked through for a delicious, spicy vegetable soup. You can also use it in a salad dressing instead of oil or when making hummus!

Spicy Immune Boosting Vegetable Stock with Ginger and Mushrooms

Servings: 4 Quarts

1 gallon (16 cups)) filtered water

1 large yellow onion, peeled and roughly chopped

1-cup sliced carrots, about 2 medium sized carrots

1-cup sliced celery, about 2 stalks

1 small parsnip, sliced (½ cup)

1 head garlic cut in half

¼ cup peeled and sliced ginger, about (2) 3’ knobs 

1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms (about 3-4 mushrooms)

1 red chile cut in half (remove seeds if you don’t want it too spicy)

1 dried chile de arbol

½ bunch parsley, washed

  1. Pour all the prepped ingredients into a 5-qt., or larger pot. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered, for 45 minutes – 1 hour. Taste the stock after 45 minutes, and if the stock doesn’t have as much flavor as you’d like, continue to cook another 15 minutes or more until you love it!
  2. Strain the stock through a fine mesh strainer and discard the solids. I always like to munch on the mushrooms, but 99% of the flavor of the vegetables is not in the liquid.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 1 month for maximum freshness.
