Vegetable Stock.

Two cups. (the rest of it is brining a Pork Loin roast...)

My first thought was to do a take on French onion soup... but everything I've seen calls for beef stock.

Anyone have any other interesting ideas for my two cups of stock? Going well with pork roast is not required, but I'd like to start there.

How about a little soup to go as the first course.

Use it to cook some pasta or rice. Or do like I do, and freeze the stock in ice cube trays, and hold for later use.

French onion soup will work with a veggie broth.

The taste will be different, but it will be lovely.

Just my take on things.
