Vegeta is one of the most famous products in the area and even worldwide. It is a product made in Croatia and it's the most common supplement of any meal. Vegeta is a condiment mostly consisted of salt and dried vegetables. The one thing that really bothers me in Vegeta is the additive they add called Mononatriumglutaminate, which is used to improve flavor. This additive is considered bad for your health, especially for children, so it's better to avoid it. That's why I use other types of condiments similar to Vegeta which don't contain Mononatriumglutaminate. But the best thing is to prepare homemade mix of spices, right?
How to prepare homemade Vegeta? Just follow the instructions. You can increase or decrease the amount of used ingredients according to your taste.

  • 700 g carrots
  • 350 g parsnip
  • 2 large celery roots
  • 2 larger leeks
  • 2 larger onions
  • 5-6 pieces garlic
  • a handful of parsley
  • 1/2 tbs turmeric
  • 1/2 tbs curry
  • 1/2 tbs black pepper
  • 1-2 tbs corn flour
  • 1-2 tbs sugar
  • Himalayan salt as much as the dried vegetables weight
  1. First wash fresh vegetables, then chop in a blender. First chop carrots, then parsnip and so on. Don't chop vegetables in too small pieces. We'll blend them again in the end after drying.
  2. Put chopped vegetables on a paper or sheets and leave on warm and sunny place to dry. Or you can dry vegetables in an oven with turned fan at 50 C degrees and you'll need several hours for complete drying. Don't forget to stir occasionally. I suggest you to prepare this mixture in summer, so you can use the sun. Vegetables will be dried in one day. 
  3. Well-dried vegetables blend a little in a blender and add spices: turmeric, curry, black pepper, corn flour, sugar and Himalayan salt in the amount of 100% of the total weight of the dried vegetables. You can add less salt depending your taste.
  4. Enjoy this natural homemade Vegeta, I'm sure you'll love it!
