Homemade herbal stock powder

Homemade stock powder

Broth cubes generally consist for the most part of salt and preservatives. If you're lucky, there are actually vegetables in it. A big reason to give this homemade stock powder a try. It is a lot healthier and also much tastier than a stock cube from the supermarket.


  • Preheat the oven to 100 degrees.
  • Finely chop the onion and garlic and mash this together with the pepper, cayenne pepper, salt and fresh herbs
  • Then add the coarsely chopped leek, carrots, spring onions, maggi and celery sticks
  • Grind this to a smooth puree, the finer you grind it, the finer the powder will eventually become
  • Take a baking tray and place some baking paper on it
  • Spread the mixture over the baking paper so that you get a thin layer.
  • The thinner the layer, the better the drying process. Put the whole thing in the oven for an hour
  • Then after an hour you open the oven door a little so that the moisture can escape (the oven remains at 100°C)
  • Then let the mixture dry in the oven for another three to six hours.
  • Stir the mixture regularly during drying When the vegetable mixture has dried completely, remove it from the oven and grind everything in a food processor to a nice powder form.
