What kind of broth should I use?
Before we get to the amazing recipes, let’s quickly chat about the key to all great soups! The vegetable broth!
Use a good quality, flavourful broth when making soups. I like to use my homemade bouillon mix for a variety of reasons. Some of the main ones include:
- A perfect blend of spices for the ultimate flavor.
- Convenience! Never run out of broth again.
- Budget friendly! Stop spending money on cartons of broth that are mainly water.
- No hidden ingredients or chemicals that you can’t pronounce.
