Vegan vegetable stock

This stock is dead easy to make and forms the basis of many of the savoury dishes. You can cheat and use a vegan stock cube, but if you have the time then it’s well worth making it from scratch. If you're making it for someone who can't have celery, use a finely diced parsnip instead.

Makes 1 litre

2 leeks
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
1 onion
1litre water

Wash the veg and peel the onion. Cut everything into quarters and place in a large pan with a lid. Add the water. Simmer gently for three hours and then strain using a sieve.

By the way - don't forget to ask all your guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in a chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy post first.
