The taste of real mushrooms, ideal for soups!
Absolutely fantastic! I used these in a low carb mushroom soup recipe, just fried onions, fresh garlic and mushrooms with one mushroom stock cube in 500ml of boiled water and around 250ml double cream, seasoned with white pepper then blended. It was better than any mushroom soup I've ever had, be it shop bought or in a restaurant. I was surprised at how these stock cubes brought such a perfect flavour to such a simple recipe, and without all the awful fillers used with other brands. This recipe is now a freezer staple and these stock cubes have proved very handy during lockdown!
Herbs herbs and more herbs.
I love kallo stock cubes normally and use all the types of the meat based ones all the time. I bought these expecting them to taste like mushrooms. They don't. They taste of thyme and other herbs. Brilliant for vegetarians who like a range of herbs in their foods but I couldn't taste mushrooms at all. If I wanted a veggie taste I could buy veg stock cubes cheaper. Off to buy some watkins mushroom ketchup now as that at least tastes of mushrooms.
We tried this once and it was excellent. Good alternative to chicken stock if you want a veggie flavouring for soups etc. Not available everywhere, so glad to see it here.
I became vegan this year and I made a savoury pumpkin pie with mushrooms, this stock gave it a very meaty taste (tasted like a steak pie). Also gravy and a base in stir fry - mmmm. I believe umami is the word for this stock!
