Oh my gosh–this stuff tastes just like chicken broth! Amazing! Since we started eating nutritarian, I use insane amounts of vegetable broth. I stopped buying the canned stuff in the first month and moved to vegetable broth base powder or the vegetable Better Than Bouillon Base. This is a healthy substitute and I know exactly what’s in it. Not only is broth useful for making soups, chilis, etc., but I also saute veggies in broth instead of oil now.
Believe it or not, I actually had every ingredient on the list already except the celery seed. Now that I have them, I can whip up a huge batch of this stuff any time I run out. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, nutritional yeast is NOT the same type of yeast that you use to make bread–so don’t try to substitute it. Nutritional yeast flakes are yellow and look almost like fish food. They have a nutty, cheesy taste and can be found in most any health store. I order mine from Amazon here. Thanks, Simple. Healthy. Tasty. for the recipe.
