vegeta alternative for lentils?

I used to always make arrowhead mills' lentil soup mix with vegeta (seasoning and soup mix), and it was wonderful. but vegeta has msg in it, which i am now trying to avoid. any ideas on how i could get an equally strong and similar flavor without using this product?

the other ingredients it contains are: salt, dehydrated vegetables (carrot, parsnip, onion, celery, parsley), sugar, cornstarch, black pepper, nutmeg, garlic, disodium inosinate, riboflavn.

thank you!

Making your own dry breakfast cereal?

I checked out the memories and found recipes for granola, but none for other types of dry cereal. I'm guessing flakes would be easiest...anyone ever done this? I absolutely love dry dereal but i am also on a budget/a tightwad and can't bring myself to spend 4 dollars on a box of cereal that i will finish in 2 days (when its around i can't stop eating good).

if there are entries in the memories that i didnt see, please do throw me a link.
