This is a wonderful base recipe for a really healthy vegetable stock. At Chiva-Som, they use it instead of oil in their cooking. It’s really amazing how this works as a great substitute for oil without taking away from any of the flavorings of the dishes it is used in. It can also be used for any kind of soup or as broth.
