Chicken stock paste

 

Like the vegetable stock paste in the Basic Cookbook the chicken and meat stock pastes are great ways to add more flavour to your meals.

Use whichever leftover vegetables you have in your fridge but keep to the weight required in the recipe.

1 tablespoon of chicken stock paste is roughly equal to 1 standard chicken stock cube. Mix 1 tablespoon of stock paste with 500g of water to make chicken stock.

The stock paste keeps in the fridge for several months.The salt in the recipe is a preservation agent so if you want to use less salt then you will need to keep the stock paste in the freezer.

A great tip to freeze the stock paste is to freeze it in an ice cube tray – one ice cube equals one tablespoon :)
