Sometimes. I like to toss in soft cooked pasta stars. Or soft cooked rice or barely. or a beaten egg.

Beef/Chicken or vegetable stock can be used as a drink just like coffee or tea,just heat it up put it in a mug and feel the warmth.
One of my favorites is to put an OXO cube in a mug of hot water,just the thing for a winter meal accompaniment.

There's zero nutritional value in broth and it's loaded with sodium unless you get a low-sodium version, so it's an absolute nonstarter for a meal replacement.

I sip it when I've been sick, am fasting, or just want a hot liquid, but it's no way, no how a soup or a meal unless you add some pasta, vegetables, etc.

Actually homemade stock is full of nutrients and protein. I don't know about the premade stuff but homemade is very nutritious.

LOL - that link refers to an 8oz serving of sodium-saturated, dry, soup mix or bouillon made by adding the product to water.

Like momtothree stated - we're talking about real cooking here, not making a soup or broth from a store-bought packet.

I didn't make it clear that I was replying to the OP, who didn't specify. Possibly s/he was talking about the canned or dried stuff which deserves a caution due to high sodium and complete lack of nutrients.

Homemade broth always tastes best but I do buy the chicken broth, beef broth, and beef consommé sometimes when I want to get serious about losing a few pounds so I'll have a cup or maybe 2 of one of the above for lunch.

Wouldn't the high sodium from it make you retain water?

You don't have to purchase the high-sodium versions.

She said she bought the above post which referenced the dry soup or boullion that is high in sodium. Or does those come in low sodium? That's why I asked.
