Tip for Busy Parents: Homemade stock

Stock is a must for busy mums to have ready in small containers in the freezer to make healthy soups for little ones (and big ones too).  Just defrost the stock, place in a pot and bring to the boil.  Add some diced vegies, small pasta or diced chicken breast (or all three for a hearty soup) and simmer until what you have added has cooked through.

The base of great soups, risottos and even casseroles is a rich fragrant stock. So there’s nothing better than having homemade stock on hand when you need it. Making stock is easy and the number of uses are endless so here are two recipes for fragrant healthy stock you can make at home and freeze ready to use.
