    Hiya,
    In one of the soup recipes it says to add Vecon. Does anyone know what this is and where I can get it from please? Is Vecon short for something else? Thank you :D xx

    It's a vegetable stock that's syn free (others aren't). It's available from health food shops (I get mine in Holland & Barrat). Looks like this!

    It's also available from a lot of places online.

    I've never been able to find Vecon (even in places like Holland and Barratt). Does it taste as good as normal veg stock?

    The bovril is fine, although I find you do need to use quite a lot of it.

    I'm veggie,so I've no idea what 'real' stock tastes like anyway! lol
    I get my Vecon from my local independant health food shop. I also get my passata from there, as it's the only brand I can find without salt or citric acid added to it.
