Soups often require and benefit from the use of Stock. Below are stock recipes and recipes for soups.

Vegetable, Chicken and Beef Stock

Many of the recipes include stock. Stock cubes are often high in salt so try to make your own. It’s easy to make and you can plan ahead, make double the amount and keep it for another time. Freshly made stock can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to 1 month. If you are in a rush and need to use a stock cube instead of fresh stock, choose one that is low in salt.
