Celifibr has actually quite delicious vegan beef and chicken bouillon cubes – recommended to me by an omnivore who swears by them as his standby non-homemade stock.
the chicken broth was instrumental in adding a little depth and dimension to the totally frigging awesome onion soup i made recently from a whackload of onions and an open and undrank bottle of Fin Du Monde i found in my kitchen one morning.
honestly the soup was pretty damn good as was, with just a bay leaf and some black pepper, but this morning i added a healthy glug of olive oil, some sautéed king mushrooms and some potatoes and garlic that i baked the shit out of in a bath of the aforementioned broth, then topped it with some parmigiano-reggiano and a borderline rancid 5-year old cheddar and mother of god was it admirable. an admirable soup. i look forward in eager anticipation to trying out the beef broth for a good ol’ french onion endeavour and maybe in future some manner of vegan beef n’ ale pie.
in mtl, i’ve found the celifibr at Les Douceurs du Marché (in the Atwater market), but it shouldn’t be too hard to find elsewhere.
