OK, I have used (and sort of liked) the ultra-pricey veg bouillon you get at the health-food store. I have seen but not tried the mushroom cubes in the kosher foods aisle at Kroger's. I saw tomato bouillon at the store over the weekend, but it was tomato with chicken. Swanson's veg broth is very good, but hard to find and you never see it in the giant cans you would like to use to make a whole pot of soup.

I am wishing it were still possible to find canned onion broth, or onion cubes, or veg cubes that didn't cost twelve dollars apiece, for making things like gravy, sauce, soup. What do people here at this site use?

I like the Better than Bouillon stuff that comes in jars. They have vegetable and mushroom bases. Jars are about $5 apiece.

I use Better than Bouillon too. I especially like the mushroom for risotto.

I the Swanson's vegetable broth, which I haven't had too much trouble finding. Trader Joe's has a similar product, if you're anywhere near one of their stores.

Have you used it to make gravy? I did once and it was good, but salty.

I haven't used it for gravy. I do find for the risotto that it can be salty if I don't watch how much I'm adding.

I make homemade vegetable broth, which is cheap and easy to make. I fill a large stockpot with water, throw in 1 onion, a carrot or two, a celery stick or two and a bay leaf. Bring to a boil, simmer for 45 minutes to an hour and it's ready to use.

The problem with (most) bouillon cubes and canned broths is that they contain MSG, which I have problems with.
