This stuff is awesome, you can add more salt if needed or use garlic salt instead of garlic powder.

Veggie Chicken Broth Mix
1-1/2 c. nutritional yeast
3 T. onion powder
2-1/2 t. garlic powder
1 T. salt
1 t. celery seed
2-1/2 T. Italian Seasoning
2 T. dry parsley

Mix in ingredients in blender and then store broth mix in an air-tight container. Add 1 T. of mix per cup of water and use as chicken or veggie broth in recipes.

I know there are good recipes that use fewer ingredients and go together faster, but I always feel good about making this. Got the recipe years ago out of gourmet magazine. I honestly don't make it much since I started buying Knorr Homestyle Stock - it comes in little tubs of gel that get added to boiling water and has excellent flavor.

Chicken Stock
from Gourmet Magazine

4 pound fowl
1 large onion stuck with 2 cloves
2 leeks, halved lengthwise
2 carrots
1 stalk celery, halved
2 teaspoons salt
Cheesecloth bag containing 6 sprigs parsley, ˝ teaspoon dried thyme, 1 garlic clove, unpeeled, and 1 bay leaf

In a kettle, combine the fowl and 12 cups cold water. Bring the water to a boil and skim the froth as it rises to the surface. Add ˝ cup cold water, bring the stock to a simmer and skim any froth.

Add the onion, the leeks, the carrots, the celery, the salt, and the cheesecloth bag and simmer the stock, skimming the froth, for 2 hours.

Remove the fowl from the kettle, remove the meat and skin from the carcass, and reserve the meat for another use.

Chop the carcass; return it and the skin to the kettle, and simmer the stock, adding boiling water to keep the ingredients barely covered, for 2 hours.

Strain the stock through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing on the solids, and let it cool. Chill the stock. Makes about 6 cups.
