We are so grateful to have the support of some of our favorite brands this season. Many thanks to the sponsors of this episode, Better Than Bouillon and Bramble!
Better Than Bouillon is one of our all-time favorite vegan pantry staples, and we turn to it all the time for soups, stews, and beyond. The "No Chicken Base" and "Seasoned Vegetable Base" are always in our kitchens. Get free shipping in the US with the code PLANTPOWERED at checkout.
Flora Plant Butter is currently our go-to butter because it's packaged so much more sustainably than most other brands. It's also perfect for holiday baking! You can swap it 1:1 for dairy butter in any recipe. It's delicious on hot toast, plant-based pancakes, or vegan waffles, great in this vegan birthday cake, frosting, and savory stir fry dishes. Look out for Flora's vegan butters in stores!
