Homemade vegetable stock is incredibly easy to make, especially if you have an electric pressure cooker (Instant Pot)! Pressure cooking the vegetables helps to extract more flavors from the herbs and vegetables. Additionally, the aromatic flavors are not lost through evaporation because everything is sealed during the cooking process. Use your stock as a base for soups and stews; the end result will be much more flavorful compared to using only water.

1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onions chopped
1 leeks chopped
3 celery stalks chopped
2 large carrots chopped
1 handfuls parsley
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 sprigs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
1 pieces kombu (optional)
10 cups water
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar (optional)
