Vegan Fonds Blanc de Volaille

[Vegan White Poultry Stock]

...Julia says that this stock is used for soups and sauces. Employ the same method and ingredients as for the preceding Vegan Fonds Blanc...white veal stock...

...and I needed some vegan stock for Thanksgiving gravy...and this will be perfect...
...you could (and I have in the past)...just use vegan chicken bouillon for making Thanksgiving gravy...
...but the addition of some veggies will make a much more flavorful stock...Julia suggests onion, carrot, celery and leek...which I didn't have so I used the green onion instead...she also says you can add a couple of snips of a parsnip...but I didn't think that sounded good...I didn't want any strong flavored veggies like that...
...just add the broth base to the pot with some water...
...chop up the veggies...
...and add those...
...and then simmer for a long time...according to Julia...a really long time...4-5 hours...we didn't do that...but let it cook an hour or so...
...and then strained out the veggies...
...and we were left with a perfectly flavorful stock...

Substitutions:

...vegan chicken broth base or bouillon...we used Orrington Farms...it's not too salty...

  1. Funny - I was looking for those Cilantro bouillon cubes as one of the last things I needed for my provisioning the other day. Couldn't find them so I settled on the Maggi brand vegetable cubes. Funny that we're on the same wavelength often!
