It’s just as easy to make as reaching for that store-bought container, and you have total control over what you’re putting in your body.

Plus, this veggie powder packs a much bigger flavor punch since the ingredients are fresh rather than dried and processed.

How To Make Homemade Veggie Stock Powder {Raw & Vegan} Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 90℃ / 200℉. Wash, dry, and slice all your veggies. To dry the veggies, use a kitchen paper towel to absorb the extra moisture.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread your cut veggies in a single layer on the sheet. Make sure that they’re not touching each other so that they can dehydrate evenly. Place the baking sheet in the oven, and allow the veggies to dehydrate for two to three hours or until they’re completely dried out.

  • To reduce the dehydration time, try to absorb as much moisture as you can from the veggies, especially from the tomatoes, with a paper towel.
  • Try to cut all your veggies to about the same thickness so that they will cook evenly. You may cut them using a vegetable slicer or a peeler. The thinner they are, the faster they will dehydrate.
  • Some veggies like potato, carrot, parsnip, and parsley will be ready sooner than tomato, celery, cabbage, or onion. Make sure you check them after 1 hour and take out those that are moisture-free and dehydrated.
  • Be careful not to overcook your veggies, as this can cause them to lose their nutritional value.
  • Some ovens lack appropriate ventilation, so you may need to crack open the door a bit to avoid moisture buildup.
