Yea it does taste like normal stock but you need to use it sparingly cos its very strong.

Its a "wet" vegetable stock made suitable for vegans so it doesnt have anything nasty in it. Its also free!!!

Yeah chicken bovril is free (so is beef) and you can make soup with it or sauces and stuff. It is the jar that is free not the cubes.

I picked up some Vecon in Holland and Barrat today. I think it was £2.59 for a big jar, which will last yonks. I have a stash of ordinary stock cubes I need to use up though, which I'll just have to syn (seems strange sinning stock lol!)

I'm quite funny with things that i might not be sure of (if that makes sense), like everyone keeps saying how great quorn is but i can't stand it. I am put off things really easily.
