Spreadability: Nice and creamy
Smell: Doesn't have much of a smell
Ingredients: Filtered Water, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Soy Protein Concentrate, Corn Starch, Sea Salt, Tricalcium Phosphate, Natural Flavors, Organic Locust Bean Gum, Xanthum Gum, Guar Gum, Vegan Culture.
Flavor: Very mild and somewhat neutral.
Bagel Test: It spread on nicely and melted slightly on my freshly toasted bagel. When I bit into the bagel I didn't have any strong reactions to the flavor or texture. Overall it paired well with my plain, toasted bagel.
Husband Test: Liked it a lot, actually. He doesn't like anything coconut - so that will tell you that is doesn't have a coconut'y flavor.
I give it 4 out of 5 Cheeses.
Would like to see a little more boldness and tang in the flavor.
FINE PRINT: This is not a paid review of any kind. I am documenting my own opinions of products that I paid for out of my own pocket.
This is my go-to recipe for making Vegetable Broth Powder. The great thing about it is that it is fully customizable. If you can't have salt, don't put it in. If you don't like thyme? Then you don't have to add that either. Frankly, I LOVE garlic, so I tend to just dump in the garlic and measure that with my heart :). I would love to know how you make yours. What flavors do you like more or less?
2 cups nutritional yeast
1/4 cup kosher salt
2 TBS onion powder
1 TBS parsley
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp celery salt (or ground celery seeds)
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp marjoram
1 tsp thyme
Combine all the ingredients into a clean jar. Mix together. For a finer powder I grind the mixture in the food processor. To test taste, add a 1 teaspoon to a quarter cup of water. Adjust accordingly.
To use as broth powder. Add 1 tablespoon to every 2 cups of water.
P.S. If you are making a different variety of ingredients, you can test by adding some of your mix to a 1/4 cup of warm water, taste and then refine. Happy Blending!
