Terrific base for vegetable soups
I make a lot of vegetable soups including ones with beans that are full-bodied, and much lighter ones such as asparagus (made without cream). This product is great for building good flavor. I usually start by sauteeing an onion with garlic, and when that's done I add a few tablespoons of the demi-glace and water. The amount of demi-glace depends on how much water and the quantity I'm making, so taste your recipe and you'll easily find the sweet spot. I think I typically get about 4 to 6 pots of soup from the 16 oz tub. My favorite cooker for these projects is the Aroma, which is primarily marketed as a rice cooker, but it's a fantastic soup pot.

The most important thing that I want to say about this product is the low sodium content. A lot of bases and bouillons are built on salt. This product has 60 mg of sodium in 2 teaspoons. As a comparison, Better Than Bouillon has 680 mg in one teaspoon. The difference is over 20 times more sodium in BTB, so the flavor is mostly salt. If you're trying to restrict sodium, this is a great way to go. I buy it for this reason, but also I like the added flavor dimension. It's the only base I've come across that isn't loaded with sodium.

5 starsNice earthiness, umami kick
I love to cook for my family and after one of them was very ill, she started to avoid chicken in her diet. It's hard to have intense favor with food without chicken broth. I have added this veggie glace in all the sauces I made and it tastes amazing. It added a nice earthiness and umami to the red wine sauce to go with a sous vide pork chop. Awesome.

I use this all the time to add to veggies. It gives them a great taste and doesn't have that salty taste that most do.
