As ready-bought stock and stock cubes/powder are not allowed on the TLC-Program you will have to make your own.

Every time we make vegetable stock in the TLC-Test Kitchen, we wonder why we ever bother buying it in the store.  It’s so easy!

This is how:

Go to your TLC-Phase 2 Vegetable List.

Choose a variety of vegetables on the list.
Chop them up and put place them in a pot of water.

Add herbs of your choice, can be dried but fresh is best.
Season with Salt and Pepper – if you wish you can leave out the seasoning and season when you put your dish together, up to you!

Ensure that all the ingredients are well covered with the water.
Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for about an hour till the veg is soft.

Strain the vegetables, leaving the liquid stock in a bowl.

Allow to cool before decanting into bottles for storage in the fridge:

Don’t throw away those delicious strained vegetables.
You can use them to add to delicious soups for your family.

Important Note:Only 2 Tablespoons of the stock may be used per day
Only vegetables on the allowed list may be used to make the stock.

Give it a try!
