But, like anyone, I occasionally want a good soup. To best test the Better Than Bouillon Vegan Base (No Chicken), the solution was to try to make a chicken noodle soup. I consider myself a pretty good cook so my challenge was to make a chicken noodle soup that would outshine my Jewish friend's mother's chicken noodle soup (blasphemy I know).
Well, after finding the right vegan chicken (not as gross as it sounds), noodles, etc., I tinkered with the recipe and thought it came out pretty well. In fact, I probably make it every few weeks now. In the real test, I gave some of it to my friend.
Now my friend is a nice guy, so even if he hated it he would probably tell me he loved it. Sure enough, he loved it. In fact, he loved it so much he shared it with his mother. Their family has been trying to eat healthy so she asked for the recipe and the rest is history.
I use this base for all my soups now, but you don't have to stop at soups. Anything that tastes better with some chicken stock (and let's face it that is a lot) tastes great with this too. I also buy the vegan no beef base on a regular basis too. They cost about the same as other Better than Bouillon stocks but without the meat products. I am a big fan.
I use this in almost every soup I make. The form of the product lets me adjust the seasoning by starting with water and adding spoonfuls of the stock base until I like the flavor. This is a distinct improvement over cubes or powdered products.
I highly recommend this product.
Super easy to use! I even made a gravy to use on a Quorn "turkey" roast and it made it the closest thing I have had to turkey on Thanksgiving in the entire time I have been a vegetarian. Love, love, love!
I use this product in some of my soup recipes to add a little extra "something" (and as a way to let my mother believe I was actually pouring chicken stock into our traditional Thanksgiving dressing recipe - if I'd used regular vegetable stock, she would have made a comment).
I don't know how to describe it, I find most standard veggie broths to be too.... "orange." I don't know if there is too much carrot in the mix or what, but this is my preferred broth for just about everything.
I just wish I could get it locally.
A minor complaint (and it was minor and the item quickly replaced by the seller) is that some of the jars I ordered had not had their lids tightened. They leaked a sticky mess in their packaging. Since the company recommends refrigeration after opening, I didn't feel safe in using these jars, but as I noted above, all was made right in no time and with little effort on my part.
It's not as salty as most of the other "better than boullion" choices, so it can be a background flavor for dishes like stuffing, or it can be made stronger to help make a roux or to blend beans to make refried beans.

Better than bullion really is. Have been using this product for years. As a vegan, no other fake chicken base even comes close to this stuff. Read morePublished 2 months ago by mrjames

Great stuff, great taste. Not nearly as concentrated as the directions say, however. One really needs half a jar to make a decent broth with the amount of water it recommends for... Read morePublished 3 months ago by M. T. Stapleton
