Vegetable Stock Powder | Recipe

Homemade vegetable stock powder is super easy to make. The recipe is completely customisable, you can add different herbs or stick with the ones we used. You can make a lot or just a little.

We used 800g of vegetables and herbs, and 160g of salt; which produced 234g of vegetable stock powder.


  • Chopping Board and knife
  • Grater
  • Bowl
  • Scales
  • Saucepan
  • Oven Tray
  • Blender
  • Clean Jars


  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Salt (20% of the weight of vegetables & herbs)


  1. Chop all vegetables and herbs finely. The finer, the easier to dry out.
  2. Weigh the vegetables and herbs, then work out how much salt you need.
    20% of the weight of vegetable and herb mix
  3. In our case, we had 800g of vegetables and herbs. We then added 20% of 800, which is 160g of salt to the vegetable and herb mix.
  4. Add vegetables, herbs and salt to saucepan.
  5. Cook on medium or medium-low heat for 2 hours. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking, The water from the vegetables will be released and cooked off, so don't worry if there is lots of water in the pan after a little cooking.
  6. After around 2 hours of cooking the mixture should become quite dry. Layer the mixture on a oven tray and roast in the oven at 150 C for around 1 hour. Stir frequently for even drying. Mixture will become crispy.
  7. Take out of oven and cool slightly.
  8. Add to blender and blend into a fine powder. If the mixture still looks moist, pour it back onto the tray and in the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Once powder if fully dry and blended into a fine powder, add the mixture to an airtight jar for storage.
