We’ve been honored this month by the inspiring blogger Meg Van Der Kruik, who has created some sensational recipes using Massel gluten-free bouillon over at her beautiful blog Beard & Bonnet.
Meg has a son with severe gluten intolerance, and is a vegetarian herself. We sent her some samples of Massel to try, and we’ve been blown away by the beautiful dishes she created.
Meg writes: “I have found myself using Massel in countless numbers of recipes here behind the scenes at B&B since I first tried it and honestly I can’t imagine my life without it anymore. I used to make a double batch of homemade vegetable broth every week, but Massel’s flavor is so rich and complex that I no longer have to make my own broth. Somehow Massel manages to create vegan versions of chicken and beef broth that really hit the mark and their vegetable broth is rich and luscious too. I have used Massel beef bouillon to “beef” up my veggie burgers, and proudly use Massel vegetable bouillon as the brothy base for my garden vegetable soup. Just in case you are wondering, Massel broth is delicious enough on its own that when my kids were sick this past winter I made them soothing mugs of hot broth to make them feel better.”
Meg started the month with a Grilled Mexican Street Corn Soup, which looks seriously addictive. Meg writes: “This summer I have dedicated countless ears of corn and batches of cashew cream to the task of remaking my favorite street food staple, and I think I have finally nailed it. While I love the traditional way that eloté is served, it is really hard to eat. So in an effort to help us all maintain our collective dignity, I decided to take a stab at easing the pain of eloté embarrassment. I give you (..drum roll, please..) Grilled Mexican Street Corn Soup!!
“Today, along with my new favorite soup recipe, I am sharing my go-to brand of bouillon, Massel. I was first introduced to Massel by my friend Tess, The Blender Girl, at the Natural Foods Expo earlier this year. Tess grew up in Australia using Massel products and was so enthusiastic about the flavor of Massel broth and the quality of the ingredients that they use in manufacturing their products that I couldn’t wait to get home and start cooking with it myself.”
Yesterday she posted an amazing Fall Harvest Bowl recipe. She writes, “I have been dreaming up this fall harvest bowl for at least a month now. Perfectly roasted, chili spiced butternut squash paired with caramelized onions, massaged kale, pepitas, and millet. All paired with my current teff obsession: Teff “polenta” fries.
“Of course this recipe wouldn’t be the same without Massel gluten-free & vegan bouillon and seasoning. I simply cannot say enough good things about this company and their delicious products. A few weeks ago I shared my Grilled Mexican Street Corn Soup and introduced you to Massel, but I didn’t want to stop there. I wanted to show you just how versatile their products are and to show you that I really do use them in my kitchen on a daily basis.”
It’s making us hungry just looking at Meg’s wonderful pictures. Thank you very much for all the delicious inspiration Meg. We’re delighted you like Massel gluten-free bouillon so much.
