I've always used Mckay's "Chicken" flavored powder, but I randomly read the ingredients again and saw it had whey. I had assumed (I know, never assume) that since the "beef" one was vegan, the "chicken" one would be too. Which brand is vegan? Which one would you all recommend?

I used to buy Frontier, I have heard that the Camel brand is good, also Country Life Brand is supposed to be good. I actually just buy nutrtitonal yeast to make my own chicken broth powder with a recipe from Bryanna, it is really good.



BRYANNA'S HOMEMADE VEGAN CHICKEN-STYLE BROTH POWDER

makes about 1 and 1/2 C.

Blend in a dry blender:

1 and 1/3 c. good-tasting nutritional yeast flakes

3 T. onion powder

2 and 1/2 T. sea salt

2 and 1/2 tsp. garlic granules or powder

1 T. soymilk powder

1 T. white beet sugar

1 tsp. dried thyme

1 tsp. finely crumbled dried sage (NOT powdered)

1 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. tumeric

Store in an airtight container and use 1 level tablespoon per cup of water.

Are you in Canada or near the border? There's a place called The Bulk Barn that has veggie "chicken" stock. They have ingredient lists on everything, it's absolutely vegan.

I've used the Country Life to make seitan, and it tastes pretty yummy.

McCormick makes all-vegetable 'beef' and 'chicken' bouillon cubes, which are available - conveniently - in most supermarkets!

Maggi makes vegetable boullion cubes that, while not "chicken" flavored per se, come pretty close to tasting like chicken broth. I used to use them when I made fake-chicken noodle soup out of TVP. It got rave reviews whenever I made it.



They're kind of hard to find despite being a common brand but I used to find them at Kroger (which is also known as Fry's here in AZ and a few other names I know around the country) pretty regularly.

if you are going for a "ham" flavor, Goya Ham rocks (and is vegan and available in Kroger)

Thanks so much everyone, I used the goya "ham" bullion- totally rocked my socks lol. I'm nowhere near Canada, unfortunately, but I have heard of the powder being in bulk bins. I've seen the Maggi in a local supermarket before, and i'll keep my eyes out for the mckormick brand. if all else fails, I'll stop being lazy and make my own, using the recipe above (thanks zimingr!)



I was really upset, with Thanksgiving coming up and everything it wasn't a good time to find out that my "chicken" powder wasn't vegan.

Today I bought The Organic Gourmey "Just-like-Chicken" Soup 'N Stock Vegan Concentrate. I have yet to use it, but it was $6.99 and makes 30 cups, as opposed to $1.89/can for UnChicken broth, and that is about 2 cups. And its vegan!

I know this is an old thread.

I have a bottle of McKay's Chicken Style Instant Broth & Seasoning. I havent used it for almost a year since I first went vegetarian. I am now vegan and I re-read the ingredients and it says Lactose. I have seen vegan recipes asking for this particular seasoning, so I am confused on why this is so. I'm 100% certain lactose is always dairy, is there another McKay's? Does anyone know? I have never seen it come differently.

Love these, use them all the time. Can't find them here in Florida though. I either buy a bunch when I go back to Canada or have my mom ship them to me when I run out. I haven't found anything else that even comes close to the "chicken" flavor..

I think there IS a vegan and a non-vegan form of McKays, I think the vegan formulation also doesn't have MSG? (I think? May have to go back and re-read both kinds when next at the HFS). The one I use says "Vegan" right on the label. Also doesn't list whey or lactose.

I buy a sort of paste like bouillon base called "Better than Bouillon" that is really great. It dissolves extremely quickly, doesn't have any MSG and is relatively low in sodium. They make a "No Beef" and "No Chicken" base that are both very tasty and vegan.

Oh I love Better Than Bullion but I haven't seen the no-chicken or no-beef ones, just vegetable. It's really very good though.

MASSELL stock cubes and stock powder are very good. They come in "chicken", "beef" and vegetable.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

I make it all the time -> http://megatarian.blogspot.com/2008/...dumplings.html



So in the years since this thread was created, I've begun using a locally made unchicken broth powder which tastes just like Campbell's soup broth. It's bizarre.

This is a pretty good recipe. A lot of VBers seem to like it....



EDIT: Sorry, Rabid_Child, I didn't see your link 'till after I'd posted.

Nothing to apologize for! It's good to have choices!

I use them too.

'Chicken' bullion powder is very expensive - like gold dust in fact.

I saw some champagne on sale the other day that had gold flakes in it. Even though I am quite sure it was vegan gold I did not buy the bottle.
