Why buy broth when you can make your own? Homemade broth is one of those things I have been experimenting with for some time. I tried making liquid recipes. I tried dry recipes. Finally, I tweaked a dry recipe I came across to my liking and use it in everything that calls for broth. It is completely vegan and gluten free. In addition, it works great in recipes that call for chicken/beef broth or stock. I love being able to make my own broth because not only does it save money BUT I am able to control exactly what goes in it. I prefer a dry recipe because it is easier to make, it is easier to store because it doesn’t take up much space, and it is very shelf stable (there is no fear of it going bad, although the spices will eventually go stale if it takes you years to use it up).
