Homemade Vegetable Broth Powder

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.

  1. Love this thank you so much, will be making this for sure

  2. Oh my gosh, thank you! I hate having to use boxes of veggie broth. I’d rather know exactly what goes into it, and this has to be so much cheaper! I’ll have to get a few of the ingredients, but I’m going to whip this up as soon as I can!!

    This tastes EXACTLY like chicken broth! I was amazed. Thanks so much for the recipe. We use a ton of chicken broth and it was becoming too expensive. I found dried lemon peel in the bulk section of my health food store. Don’t leave anything out of this recipe!

    I’ve been looking for a powdered recipe for ages! Are you sure that’s not too much nutrition yeast? Is the taste over powering cause it’s not my favourite! Hehe thankyou it looks fabulous! X

  5. Mike says:

    The pictured spice jars show regular thyme and regular lemon peel. I am not sure where to buy powdered thyme or powdered lemon peel. I am not sure where to buy those.

    Also, will the sodium be high when I use this?

    I definitely want to try making this. Thank you!

      The pictured spices are the ones I used. Salt IS an ingredient. If that’s a concern, you could reduce the quantity. Remember, though, you’re only using one teaspoon of this powder per cup of water, so it’s quite diluted.

    I make this a lllllll the time but I don’t use the nutritional yeast b/c my ayurvedic doctor said to avoid it. It’s still great. Thank you!

    • beryl leah says:

    Thank you for the wonderful recipe. Will no longer be buying the pre-made. Didn’t have to purchase anything to make it.

    Thank you! My fave dried veggie broth now has something in it I don’t eat (an MSG product), so have been trying to find a good powdered broth recipe. I tried one that was awful and made my own, also not good, but this worked so well. Just had some delicious ramen with it. Yum.

    Have been making veggie powder for years, always looking for a better recipe. Made this and love it! Instead of the lemon rind, I used those little water flavor envelopes, which is supposed to equal the juice of a wedge of lemon, and I also always use a tablespoon or so of xylitol. So, THANKS!
