  • Slow cooker


Base Ingredients

  • 1 cup onion quartered
  • 3 cup carrots peeled, chopped
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 3 cloves garlic whole
  • 1/4 cup thyme fresh
  • 1 tbsp rosemary fresh
  • 1 tsp oregano dried
  • 1 cup water

Spice Blend

  • 1 tsp marjoram dried
  • 1 tsp basil dried
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp tarragon dried
  • 2 leaves bay


  • Add all of the ingredients to a 2 or 4 quart slow cooker. Cook on the high setting for 3 1/2 hours; stirring occasionally to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the cooker.
  • Once the vegetables are cooked, remove any tough herb stems that will not puree. Add the veggies to your food processor then add the spice blend; pulsing until blended well.
  • Transfer the mix to empty ice cube trays and press into the molds. Place in the freezer until the cubes freeze; pop them out once done and place in a freezer zip-lock bag or container.
  • When measuring for a recipe, use twice as much of this bouillon as you would store-bought bouillon cubes.


Use to make a delicious veggie stock in a multitude of soups, stews, and sauces.
