I usually don't have time to throw together much of anything before going to work, but I did find myself with 15 spare minutes, so I threw togther a quick soup-style dealie. I boiled 1 1/2 cups of water and dissolved one "chicken" boullion cube in it. After having a hell of a time trying to break a nest of bean thread noodles in half, I added one of the halves to the broth and let cook a few minutes. Then I added a handful each of fresh chopped mushrooms (I'm obsessed), shredded carrots, and frozen broccoli chunks and let those cook a minute or two. Finally, I added a few of Trader Joe's frozen veggie gyoza rolls and allowed that a bit of time to defrost and cook.

I think the boullion I used was by Celifibr and is Canadian-produced with the box printed in French and English, and is marked vegan. They are also organic and MSG-free and don't seem to be too overwhelmingly salty. I also found a beef-flavored version. What are your preferred brands and flavors of boullion?
