One of my staple meals this winter has been cream of broccoli soup, and a necessary ingredient for my recipe is vegetable broth or vegetable stock. Glancing over the the canned soup shelf in my tiny co-op, my eyes were falling on every type of broth except vegetable. After asking an employee stocking a nearby produce bin about the broth, he came over to the shelf and picked up a jar of Better Than Bouillon and started raving about it.

This 8-oz. glass jar is filled with a concentrated vegetable past that just gets stirred into hot water to make a broth. To create the equivalent of an 8-oz. can of broth or one bouillon cube, just add one teaspoon (that's it!) of Better Than Bouillon to 8-oz. of hot water. And each jar contains 38 servings, or makes 9.5 quarts of broth! You really can't a better deal for your dollar! The vegetables included in the ingredient list for the Reduce Sodium Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base are carrots, celery, onion, tomato, garlic and potato.

Since purchasing this product, I have used it in the above mentioned cream of broccoli soup as well as a vegetable and rice side dish. I've been making cream of broccoli soup for years, and it has never tasted so good! The flavor from the Better Than Bouillon is so much more substantial than what you get with a vegetable broth, yet isn't the slightest bit overpowering. It blends very well with the broccoli, cream and cheese. My favorite benefit of using this product is that you can alter the concentration. Using a bouillon cube, it is nearly impossible to add just a bit more or a bit less than one full cube without making a mess, and adding more or less broth can cause a problem with the liquid measurements for your recipe. Using Better Than Bouillon gives you the freedom to add more or less flavor without changing the amount of water needed for your recipe. 

The product list from Better Than Bouillon offers your standards like beef, chicken and vegetable, but also has "premium" bases like chili, mushroom, lobster and clam. Also available are Kosher, organic and reduced sodium bases. So far, my experience with this product has been great that I'm ready to never go back to canned broth again!

Based on your suggestion I found a jar of Better than Bouillon while shopping today. I also picked up some raw organic honey. I cant wait to try it in my coffee tomorrow. I just opened it and tried a small taste on a spoon and it was heavenly!
