Vegan 101: Veggie Broth

This installment of Vegan 101 is all about vegetable broth, which I know might not sound that exciting, but bear with me here.  I love vegetable broth because it has the power to turn a chicken broth-laden dish into one that’s totally vegetarian.  For us veg-heads, that’s pretty exciting!

Even if you’re not vegetarian, you can make this one tiny change – from meat broth to veggie broth – and make your meals so much healthier.  The best part is that you don’t have to sacrifice any flavor in the process.  Lower cholesterol and great taste?  Yep.  It’s true.

Are you a vegetarian who’s dealt with the “Oh you can eat it, I only used chicken BROTH” issue?  Or do you have a favorite brand of pre-made broth that I didn’t mention in the video?  Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. I’ve always wanted to make my own vegetable broth, but I’m too lazy and scared. Thanks for the already made suggestions!! That broth looks great on this rainy day. :)

  2. I am a big fan of Penzey’s vegetable soup base. It makes a good vegetable stock and makes and even better gravy.

  3. I love the bouillon cubes! I use ‘em when I make your poultry gravy and that is not only on Thanksgiving…it is about once a month =) Great video as usual!

  4. The starting of this video is soooo hilarious! Haha. That is soooooo how it is. THe funniest part was the “just a little bit, you can eat it” part. Oh man! You highlighted some of my favorite brands!! I love the rapunzel brand bouillon! Great post!

  5. Cute video! I like the animated animals LOL!

  6. I’m all about Rapunzel :) Keep these great videos comin’!
