Super Paleo Stock!

Any good sauce, soup or gravy starts with a bloody good stock! Whether it’s a roasted meat you’re dressing up, wanting to jazz up a nut roast or simply making a wonderfully heart warming soup you’ll love this stock recipe. Disclaimer: It’s vegetarian, it’s Paleo, it’s simple, it’s so yummy you’ll exclaim a “phwoar!” – that’s a guarantee!

My lovely local green grocer inspired this by suggesting celeriac, with the celeriac leaves. If you can pick one up I’d recommend it over the classic choice of a celery stick or two. You’ll still produce the affect of using celery but add a velvet smoothness from the chunks of celeriac. 

Let’s make this happen!

  1. 1/2 (200g ish) Celeriac, pealed and cut into 6 chunks
  2. Celeriac leaves
  3. 1 large carrot, cut into 4 chunks
  4. 1 large or 2 medium white onions, inc their skin, cut into 4
  5. Fresh thyme - 20-25g ish, yes that's a lot!
  6. 1 tsp whole pepper corns
  7. 1 tsp himalayan salt
  8. 1 tsp garlic powder
  9. 2 tsp coconut oil
  10. 2.5 ltr cold water
  1. Take a big pot, turn of the stove and melt the coconut oil.
  2. Add the carrot and onion to brown, approx 2 mins on a high heat
  3. Add the celeriac and it's leaves to brown for a further 2 minutes
  4. Add water
  5. Add thyme, garlic, salt and pepper corns
  6. Bring to the boil
  7. Lower the heat, place the lid on the pot and simmer gently for 3 hours
  8. Check every now and again, give a little stir and a sniff! Careful not to have the heat on high, this will cause the pan to dry up.
  9. Push the ingredients through a fine sieve, so you get all the lovely juices, into a jug or container.
  1. Optionally, after sieving you could return to the hob and leave to simmer for another 2 hours on low, making the stock even more concentrated.

Optional ideas:

  • Add some beef bones for a rich depth that’s ideal to pair with red meet (If you’re keen on meat)
  • Add a chicken carcass, this is a great option for prepping for soups
  • Add chillies
  • Add red currants for a fruity twist, great with nut roasts
  • Add cumin, if this stock is likely to be the base of any indian dishes
  • Add citrus, 1/2 and orange or lemon can sharpen this stock up nicely for a refreshing zing
  • Add ginger
  • Add 1/2 tsp of maple syrup, I know that may sound odd but it’s lovely!
