My review is for the inclusion in a recipe of Vegetable Stock Powder:
* 1-star out of 5
I am not adding salt, MSG and sugar to my otherwise healthy cooking.
Podravka Vegeta real gourmet stock.
Main ingredient salt. :(
Dehydrated vegetables and parsley—I will use fresh from my garden.
Monosodium Glutamate—NO thank you!
Disodium Insinuate—more salt
I make healthy stock from the scrap vegetables and bones some people throw away, I freeze and use that stock when needed.
Stock and bouillon
If you’ve done your homework, you’ve noticed that almost all soup recipes call for stock.
That’s another thing you never have to buy again. I discovered years ago that making stock is even easier than making soup. And you can make it from things most people put in the garbage! Honestly.
You know all those potato, cucumber, pumpkin and zucchini peels, pear and apple cores, onion skins, cauliflower and broccoli stalks, leek tops, plus the outer leaves of lettuce, cabbage, and the green tops of the celery that collect in your kitchen?
Instead of sending them straight to the compost, or worm farm, keep some of them in a plastic bag in the freezer.
Once you have enough to half-fill your biggest pot, it’s time to make stock.
Add some bones and a teaspoon full of vinegar to draw the minerals out of those bones, and you have the makings of highly nutritious stock. You can freeze it into single servings and use it in stews and casseroles as well as soup.
