I used to unwrap those gold cubes and watch them dissolve in hot water.  Now I know better because those cubes contain hydrogenated oils and Monosodium Glutamate, aka MSG.  MSG can cause all sorts of reactions like headaches, facial pressure, numbness, drowsiness and tingling. If you’ve ever experienced a reaction to MSG you know you want to avoid it.

Did you know half of a cube contains 35% of the suggested daily amount of sodium?! Half a cube!

 

I decided to make my own vegetable bouillon powder that’s free from chemicals and lower in sodium.

What is Nutritional Yeast?

You might hear it called Nooch. It is a deactivated yeast related to brewer’s yeast. It is called Nutritional yeast because of its nutrition. It’s full of B vitamins, folic acid, protein and fiber. It has a nutty, cheesy flavor and its great in soups, on pasta, popcorn or anywhere you would use parmesan. Remember to store it in a dark container or cabinet to maintain the nutrition, but it can be kept for up to two years.

You can find it HERE, in the health food section of your grocery store or possibly in the bulk section. Buying a small amount from the bulk section might be a good idea if you are apprehensive. I bet you will end up loving it and buying more, though.

 

How do you make vegetable bouillon powder?

You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own and you know everything that is in it.  This bouillon is MSG free, low sodium and will stay fresh in your spice cabinet for several months.

    I made the Vegetable Bouillon Powder with only 1 tsp of salt & celery seed & then made the Cauliflower Chowder.
    It was delicious, according to the husband of the house. I think the garlic clove load of the cauliflower soup
    made the difference in whether the salt was missed. Not sure. I also added a pinch of Cheyenne & the Liq smoke.
    I will make it again.

      I’m so glad you liked it Irma! The roasted garlic definitely gives the flavor a boost. I’m glad you liked the Veggie Bouillon, too, and were able to make it even lower in sodium for your needs!

    oh i never heard about it! I sometimes add turmeric to my soups, but that’s all. Also, I checked other posts of yours and I am loving the avocado recipes, will definitely try them.

  3. Stephanie

    Oh my gosh, I wish I had seen this yesterday when I needed vegetable broth and had none. This looks so easy and I have it all except the yeast to make my own.

    1. Cindy Author

      The yeast gives it an immense amount of flavor! I highly recommend getting some!

  4. Kate Kreates

    Ooh, this sounds great – and so much healthier than shop bought vegetable stock cubes!

  5. Shannon

    I had no clue that you could make this on your own and the pre packed once were so bad for you!

    1. Cindy Author

      It’s eye opening Shannon once you investigate the ingredients list!

  6. Evelyn Hernandez

    This is awesome! I wonder what the sodium level is? It is not on the label, would love to try this bouillon powder.

  7. Flossie McCowald

    No, I haven’t made this yet, but I totally want to! Love the fact that there is less sodium in in than commercial ones!

  8. Helene

    It’s so good to make this powder yourself as you are totally right about the daily amount of sodium. Plus, you choose whatever you like to add and give the final taste.

  9. Glenda

    This vegetable bouillon powder is sure incredible. I really like the health benefits and need to try it out.

    1. Cindy Author

      Thanks Glenda! It’s so nice to have health benefits from bouillon vs. health issues from the chemical laden store bought ones.

    Who would have thought bouillon powder was that easy to make! and so similar to a marinade!
