Vegetable Broth Mix Recipe | All-Purpose Seasoning

Need a substitute for chicken or beef broth? Or a great all purpose seasoning? This is it! This Vegetable Broth Mix is a great substitute for chicken or beef broth in soups or stews, and it doubles as a fabulous All Purpose Seasoning.

I love making my own homemade seasonings. By making your own celery salt, curry powder, taco seasoning, and more, you can be in control of the ingredients you use while you save money over buying pre-mixed containers at the store.

While I am quite the fan of stock and just made homemade turkey stock a few weeks ago, I am trying to be balanced and I do not always have time to make stock, nor can I justify the expense of purchasing boxed stock all the time.  However, I am considering it. This is one area of my family’s menu planning where I am still sorting out what to do.

This is, instead, a recipe for your own vegetable broth mix.

In my mother’s pantry there were those terrible little fake orange colored vegetable broth cubes with a plethora of ingredients (including MSG and hydrolyzed lot of stuff) that would make any self-respecting person-in-search-of-a-healthier-lifestyle’s hair stand on end.

When we moved to Michigan I started purchasing organic vegetable broth cubes and powders by the case in order to save a bit of money while keeping the convenience of the mix.

One day, however, it occurred to me that I could probably make my own broth.  In fact, this is how my brain usually works.  I look at a food or personal care item and wonder if there might be a way that I could make it myself.  Sometimes I am right and I find a great new project.  Sometimes I am able to make something myself, but it isn’t worth the time or money.  Sometimes I’m just stuck with what I can buy.

The vegetable broth mix attempt was a winner, though I must say that I have another idea in mind to make it better and healthier, but it will be awhile before I try it.  I will be sure to share the results once I do.

I spent some time and tried a few recipes until I found one that I really liked on cdkitchen.com.  It has been in my pantry ever since and I recommend that you put it in yours as well.

You can use this mix not only to make vegetable broth, but also as an all-purpose seasoning.  I love it on vegetables, meats, basically anything savory…even on popcorn!

If you would prefer to buy bone broth, here is a great place to but it.

I really prefer to make my own seasonings whenever I can.  It allows flexibility and control over the ingredient proportions but also has you keeping fewer raw ingredients in your pantry.

You’ll also use your spices up more quickly, so they’re less likely to go stale.

You can also take advantage of bulk discounts by purchasing your spices in larger quantities, knowing that you will be using them up more quickly.  Read my post on Homemade Seasoning Blends to find out more.
