A while back I mentioned that I cook with chicken bouillon quite a bit. One of my readers told me about a vegetable bouillon recipe at a blog called Simple. Healthy. Tasty. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical. First, the main ingredient is nutritional yeast. I had never heard of this. And second, the blogger claims that it tastes like chicken bouillon in recipes. Turns out I didn't have anything to fear!
Nutritional yeast is described here on Wikipedia. It can be bought in bulk bins at WinCo, Smith's Marketplace, and natural food stores.
I like using this bouillon! So far I have used it in stroganof, enchiladas, and vegetable soup. I will post more about each of these later. I am not going to use this bouillon exclusively right now. I just bought a mega-huge container of Knorr chicken bouillon for only $4.98 (WalMart). So I need to use that. But I really do like the idea of making my own bouillon. I like knowing what's in the food I eat. Part of the beauty of cooking from scratch.
My one suggestion. The recipe says to add 1 tablespoon to every quart of water. I would recommend using 1 tsp. to every cup of water.
And by the way: My husband liked this too! He just thought some of the recipes weren't quite flavorful enough. (Note the hint above.)
