Mighty Veggie Stock Powder
Makes roughly 1.5 cup of powder
1 tsp powder paired with 1 cup water makes 1 cup delicious + healthy stock. Use less if you are only looking to add a little extra flavor to an already flavorful stew, soup or meal. A sprinkling when cooking savory grains, making pesto, dips, sauces, soups, stews is terrific.
3/4 cup Nutritional Yeast (not brewers yeast)
1/4 cup brown rice flour
3.5 tbsp himalayan pink salt
1 tbsp dried thyme
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp sweet paprika powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly and store in an air-tight glass container in the fridge.
Nourishing Soul Soup
The seriously delicious stock made with the Mighty Veggie Stock Powder can easily be turned into a comforting and nourishing soup by either cooking it on the stove in a pot with fresh vegetables + noodles or pouring it hot over the same layered veggies + kelp noodles in a glass jar (as pictured below). I like to prepare a few glass jars of noodles and vegetables and store in the fridge. When I need that quick meal I simply pour the hot stock into the jar and let it sit, lid on for 5 minutes.
2 cups water
2 tsp Powerful Veggie Stock Powder
1/2 cup fresh kelp noodles or your noodles of choice
1 handful cauliflower florets
1/3 cup peas (or other cooked beans)
1/3 cup sauerkraut or other fermented vegetables
1 medium sized carrot, cut in matchsticks
1/4 sweet potato, cut in matchsticks
1/2 handful fresh parsley leaves
1 tsp fresh ginger, peeled & grated
Prepare all ingredients for the soup and rinse the kelp noodles.
2. Bring 2 cups water to a boil and add 2 tsp Powerful Veggie Stock Powder. Stir until dissolved.
3. Add the hot stock to EITHER the pot of vegetables + kelp noodles on the stove and let cook on low heat for 2-4 minutes OR pour the stock over your glass jar layered vegetables. If your are doing the jar method then put the lid onto the jar and let sit for 5 minutes prior to eating. Enjoy with a dollop of raw, vegan or dairy based sour cream/ yoghurt/other – a true Soul Soup, friends!
