I need to make some more, so will try this one this time.  I use the thermomix stock concentrate exclusively now, it really livens things up, especially risottos.  Will report back.

I'll be giving it a try, too, thanks for sharing.
Like Cookie, I use the TM stock concentrate exclusively and love it, but this one looks better.

Tenina, please check the recipe in the Full Steam Ahead book - that is where I stole this from (the Italian version anyhow)  :-[ :-[

From memory, I cut the salt down to 100g from 150g using the recipe in the TM book. The salt is there as a preservative more than anything and I use it exclusively too and use it up rather rapidly. I still find it a little salty and may play with reducing the salt some more. I will report back if I THINK to change it with the next batch.

Thanks for the recipe Thermomixer.  I just made it (with reduced salt) and will let you know how it tastes.

I can give you all a few tips, though.  They're all related to reading the recipe properly first!!!!!

1.  Take the parmesan OUT like the recipe says.  Trust me on this - the clean up if you don't will be a nightmare.  It catches.

2.  Read right through so that you register that this is not like a conventional stock - you will not be draining the broth off the vegetables.

3.  Peel the onions, don't leave the peel on to give colour (see tip 2 above).

4.  De-string the celery, don't think the strings will be strained out at the end (see tip 2 above)

OK, so I should have looked here FIRST!
I had something similar to this in the recipe book that came with my machine, but it referred to ingredients that weren't in the ingredient list (so no quantities). I went to the Italian site and spent a couple of hours messing around with translators and finally pieced it together, only to come here and find... Voilà-- the recipe I had been looking for.

Next time...

Then, of course, there is Bron's vegetable stock in this section too Aunt Annie so you now have quite a choice ;D ;D

Oooh, I just took a look at Bron's too. With the parsnip and turnip it will be great for winter! Thanks for calling my attention to it.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to "bump" this recipe for those who haven't seen it - it is a great alternative to the vege stock paste that is in the EDC.  The parmesan cheese makes a really tasty addition.  I alternate betweeen the EDC stock paste, this Italian stock paste version and bron's spanish stock paste - depending on what vegies and herbs we have on hand.
