1 small clove garlic
1 small red (Spanish) onion, cut in half
3/4 lb fresh white mushrooms, cut in halves
8 cups cold water

Vegetable Stock Recipe at
In a saucepan over low heat, warm the olive oil. Add the carrot, celery and leeks and sauté until the leeks are slightly translucent, 3-4 minutes.

Add the garlic, onion and mushrooms and sauté until the onion is slightly translucent, about 2 minutes.

Pour in the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Using a large spoon, skim any scum from the surface, if necessary. Add the tomato, thyme, marjoram and parsley. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended, about 1 hour.

Strain the stock through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth (muslin) into a clean container. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Use immediately, or let cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
