Get familiar with the many ways you can use vegetable broth below. Whether you are using store-bought broth or you are making your own vegetable broth from scratch, you’ll find so many uses for it here.

what is broth?

Broth is a medley of vegetables, meat, or a combination of both that cook down slowly in water to enrich the liquid with flavor and nutrients. It’s savory and a wholesome addition for making a plethora of recipes and is utilized in different ways.

What’s the difference between broth and stock

I used to use the terms broth and stock interchangeably. I thought it was pretty much the same thing – savory liquid made from boiling water with meat, bones, vegetables, and/or herbs. But there is actually a subtle difference between the two. Stock is generally made from bony parts of beef or chicken. But broth is made more out of meat or vegetables only. Stock tends to be richer, while broth tends to be thinner.

Both play supporting roles in many dishes to help deliver a boost in flavor. But let’s focus on broth today.

How to buy the best broth

I do often make my own vegetable broth from scraps of vegetables and herbs. But that can be time-consuming. And that’s where store-bought vegetable broth comes in. All packaged vegetable broths are not created equally. So look for these three cues that you’re buying a good one.

  1. Minimal: Think about if you were to make vegetable broth at home. What ingredients would you include? Probably onions, carrots, celery, and some herbs, and maybe garlic or some seasonings. Bottom line, though, is to keep the ingredient list simple and short.
  2. High quality: Avoid any vegetable broths that contain low-quality ingredients that may taste good but aren’t really good for your body. That includes MSG, natural flavor, and dehydrated vegetables.
  3. Organic: I know organic can be tough because of the pricing. But when it comes to broth, the organic one is only about $0.25 more. And that small price difference means it has no GMOs and no pesticides.

what CAN YOU make with vegetable broth?

There is surprisingly a variety of ways you can use vegetable broth and so many recipes that you can make with it, and I’m not talking just about soup! Get creative by using broth as a replacement for water in soups, gravies, and sauces, and as a substitute for oil when sautéing veggies and meat, or for making an oil-free dressing.

recipes using vegetable broth

The most common recipes that use broth are soups, stews, and chilis. It’s the best way to instantly enhance a recipe with depth, sweetness, and savory flavors. But, let’s reach out of the box and try new ways to use broth in almost any savory recipe. Try replacing water and oil for broth in pasta dishes, sautéing vegetables and meats instead of oil, and in side dishes like a liquid in mashed potatoes, oil in a salad dressing, or in most cases where water, oil, or broth is on the ingredient list.

Soups, Stews, and Chili

Using vegetable broth interchangeably with chicken and beef broth is easy to do, and the flavors are just as impactful. It can replace the water in most soup recipes, too.

Pasta dishes

When making pasta recipes, switch out the water for vegetable broth to add more flavor to the dish. One way to do this is by replacing half the water when boiling pasta. Another is to use broth as a replacement in a recipe that uses water as an ingredient, like thinning down a sauce.

  • Spinach Hummus Pasta – Use vegetable broth as a replacement for water to thin down a pasta sauce which adds a touch of flavor like in this cream hummus pasta recipe.
  • Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles – My take on a healthy scampi is full of nutritious ingredients, full of the best flavors, and made with zucchini noodles for a lighter dish.

Sauteeing with Broth

Reduce your calories by using vegetable broth instead of oil to sauté vegetables and meats with. This is also an easy exchange for those aiming for an oil-free or plant-based diet.

  • Plant-based Cauliflower Curry – The ultimate comfort dish bursting with robust Indian spices and creamy coconut milk for a healthful recipe. Sub the oil for sautéing with broth and for replacing some or all of the water.
