  • You can substitute 4 cups of fresh broccoli florets for 1 pound green beans or fresh baby-cut carrots.
  • For something different, try 3 cups frozen whole kernel corn or peas or 1 package (16 ounces) your favorite frozen vegetable blend in this recipe.
  • To save time, use your microwave. Most stores now carry fresh and frozen vegetables in 12-ounce microwave-ready "steamer" bags. Just prepare according to package directions, drain and toss in a medium bowl with2 pouches Swanson(R) Concentrated Vegetable Broth!
  • For an Italian twist, stir in 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
  • To add some crunch, stir in 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts or sliced almonds.
  • For a honey-balsamic glaze, stir in 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons honey. Cook and stir over low heat for 5 minutes or until the glaze is thickened.

I used one package of FROZEN california blend vegetables. This was okay. Seemed to be a bit on the salty side for us. Two of the flavor boost packets was too much for one package of vegetables. I might make this again but I'd play with the recipe a bit.


Definitely quick, but heavy on the flavor... I used a steam in bag of broccoli and used only one flavor packet. While it's nice to enhance the flavor of vegetables you certainly don't want to cover them up completely. Very simple recipe, but keeping in mind that this is concentrated only use enough to taste. I do like the options in the footnotes to add a little variety.


This was my first experience with the Swanson Flavor Boost Concentrated Vegetable Broth. As a flavor enhancer, it works pretty well. For this recipe though, I need to make a couple of comments. First of all, prepare your vegetables the way you usually do (I believe the recipe notes offer another cooking method, along with options for other vegetables and various add-ins). If you steam broccoli, continue to do so. I use a pressure cooker for carrots, because in my opinion, boiling them reduces their flavor. I don't believe I ever boil a fresh vegetable, so the first step of this recipe doesn't work for me. My second comment about this recipe is to sample your vegetables after adding only one packet of the concentrate and tossing well. For us, 1 and 1/2 pounds of carrots only needed one packet of the concentrate, and no other seasoning. I believe that two packets would have overpowered the vegetable flavor. Though heavy on sodium, there is very little fat, so the calorie count is low.
