  • 1 large white onion, rough chopped
  • 2 cloves black garlic
  • 2 tsp. black peppercorns

  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • salt and pepper

Directions for Roasted Vegetable Stock

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. In a large bowl add carrot, celery and onion
  3. Drizzle with avocado oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  4. Lay veggies in one even layer on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and roast 30 minutes or until they are nicely caramelized on top
  5. Pour roasted veggies into a large pot and add black garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves
  6. Add one gallon cold water and aromatics of your choosing
  7. Simmer over low heat for at least two hours

***Chef’s Note***

The longer you simmer the broth the more rich and intense the flavors will become. If you have the ability to make a large batch (double the recipe) and allow it to go for 8 or 10 hours on a chilly Sunday, you will be greatly rewarded.
