Vegetable Bouillon Cube: Stock Cube with Thermomix

Vegetable Bouillon Cube: Stock Cube with Thermomix

The recipe of Thermomix Vegetable Cube, is among most famous Thermomix recipes because it is really useful and very easy to make.
This Bouillon Cube, as it is called in the States, or Stock Cube, as it is called in the UK and Australia, is something I was used to buy at the supermarket. But, now, when I discovered this Thermomix recipes, I won't by it anymore!!!!

You can also use it as a nice and useful gift!!!!!

I admit that I discovered it for a short time and that I tried it only as a challenge. Actually, a friend of mine told me that he had given up using Thermomix because, after having done the cube (too salty for him), he lost all interest in Thermomix.

Then I told me: why not to try it me too to see why is this vegetable cube done with Thermomix so famous? It was a wonderful discovery!

Now I use this cube in a lot of recipes and I cannot do without it anymore.

I understood my friend’s mistake: you mustn’t taste the cube!!!! It obviously is too salty, otherwise it wouldn’t be a cube!

In comparison with cubes you can buy, not only it has a delicious savour and you can taste each vegetable, but you know what there is within. ;-))))) How many legends (more or less true) I heard about cubes’ ingredients...!

With my home-made cube I have no more this sort of problems!

You can use this vegetable cube in many many recipes.

Ingredients

- 1 big piece of celery
- 1 carrot
- 1 onion
- 1 zucchini (only if it’s its season)In winter you can substitute it with a slice of pumpkin!
- 1 clove of garlic
- 20 g fresh mushrooms
- some leaves of seasonal aromatic herbs (rosemary, basil, sage etc.)
- 1 sprig of parsley
- 200 g coarse salt
- 80 g extra virgin olive oil
- 30 g dry white wine



How to make Vegetable Cube

Put 1 big piece of celery, 1 carrot, 1 onion, 1 zucchini (or pumpkin), 1 clove of garlic, 20 g fresh mushrooms, some leaves of seasonal aromatic herbs (rosemary, basil, sage etc.), 1 sprig of parsley in the mixing bowl and mix 10 Sec. Speed 7.

Add 200 g coarse salt, 80 g extra virgin olive oil and 30 g dry white wine. Put the simmering basket on the lid and cook 20 Min. Temp. Varoma Speed 2.

Blend. 1 Min. Speed. Turbo.

If it results too liquid (as usual, it depends on water coming from vegetables and mushrooms!!) you can thicken for necessary time at Temp. Varoma.

My advices

You can store vegetable cube in your fridge for three months.

You can put it in ice-cubes box or small boxes in the freezer. So you will always have some cubes ready to use!

If you like, you can add parmesan.
