Here are 8 economical dinner options that begin with vegetable stock paste.

When faced with the dinner dilemma, the question “what’s for dinner?” often arises. Given the rising costs of groceries, preparing a meal that is both economical and appealing to the whole family can be quite challenging.

To infuse your meals with rich flavor, homemade vegetable stock paste is essential (it’s also one of the initial recipes you’ll learn during your Thermomix delivery briefing with your Consultant!). By making your own, you not only save money but also have control over the ingredients, avoiding any hidden additives and preservatives commonly found in store-bought options.

Pro tip: To make your vegetable stock paste even more economical, keep a bag or container in the freezer for collecting vegetable peels and odds and ends!


Cauliflower is readily available throughout the year, but it reaches its peak during Autumn. What better time to utilize this versatile vegetable than by making Cauliflower Soup with Bacon Dust? This recipe adds an extra flavor crunch to the soup, making it a delightful and comforting dish to enjoy during the cooler months of Autumn.

Looking for a fancy breakfast-for-dinner option? Try the Spicy Eggs with Tomato Sauce paired with a slice or two of freshly baked bread. This dish is incredibly easy to make and will only take 30 minutes of your time.

The Vegetarian Chili is the ultimate budget-friendly dinner that utilizes pantry ingredients! It’s also incredibly versatile and can be served with rice, jacket potatoes, traditional Mexican sides like guacamole, sour cream, grated cheese, or used to fill tortillas and tacos!

If you’re craving something more substantial, you can use your vegetable stock paste as a base for a comforting soup or stew!
