I think of all the food items in my kitchen, I probably use this one the most — my Homemade Chicken Bouillon Powder!
The reason I use it so much is because it is so versatile and can be used in a lot of recipes. I thought it would be fun to do a post where I round up some of the recipes that I use the Chicken Bouillon Powder in. If you haven’t ever tried it, go get the ingredients and mix yourself up a jar full of it and give it a try! You will love it. I promise!
- 1 1/3 cups nutritional yeast flakes
- 3 Tablespoons onion powder
- 7 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 Tablespoon rice protein powder (*or sub with other protein powder)
- 1 Tablespoon sugar (*or sub with Truvia)
- 2 1/2 teaspoons garlic granules or powder
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- Blend all the ingredients in a small food processor until powdery and mixed well. Store in a dry, airtight container. I use a pint jar with a lid and it works perfectly!
- Use 1 level teaspoon per cup of boiling water.
- Yield: 1 1/2 cups of bouillon powder
- * For those following THM, this bouillon powder would work wonderfully to make your own quick sauces and gravies! I use this all the time to add flavor to soups.
