You can use this homemade vegan bouillon powder in any recipe that calls for vegetable or chicken broth. The taste is incredible: a dead-on flavor match for the chicken broth we all grew up loving but with a full and comforting texture, thanks to some magical ground nutritional yeast!

Here are some of our favorite ways to use this homemade vegan bouillon powder:

  1. Mix 1 Tbsp bouillon powder with 1 cup hot water to make a vegan chicken broth that can be used when cooking rice or other grains, re-hydrating soy curls, making homemade seitan, and any other time you would need a good, flavorful broth!
  2. It is a critical ingredient in many of our soups, like our vegan chicken stew and vegan chicken noodle soup – a recipe that is on regular rotation in this house, especially during the colder months or the minute we start feeling sick!
  3. Casseroles! Like our chicken(less) tetrazzini in all its creamy comforting goodness. We also use it to make our vegan condensed cream of chik’n soup which is a key component to veganizing alll your favorite childhood casseroles.
  4. The BEST vegan gravy. Seriously, we make this stuff every year for Thanksgiving, and without fail, someone ends up drinking the last remnants straight from the gravy boat. 😁
  5. Two words: vegan. ramen.

  1. This is great I can't wait to try this recipe . I hate to buy those mock chicken seasoning bouillon because the ingredients are not good . How many servings would you say are in this recipe ?
  2. I'm very excited to try this - the chickenless bouillon I buy in the store has a chemical off taste in some dishes, so I'm hoping this will flavor everything perfectly!
    1. Hi, Vanessa! It's just a mix of spices, so you can store it in an air-tight container in your spice cabinet for several months, just like any other seasoning. Hope you enjoy it! :)
    1. Hey, Donna! It may seem like a lot when you look at it as a whole, but we recommend using 1 Tbsp powder to 1 cup water so it's pretty diluted and a lot less salt than you'd find in a commercial bouillon. But of course, the great part about making it yourself is that you can use less or more of whatever you want!
  3. I’m back - I’ve made this 3x now and it is like the secret ingredient in my cooking. So very good!!! Bravo to you!
  4. This is awesome! So much thanks for sharing this recipe! This way I know all the ingredients of my bouillon (no added junk) and I can use it for all kind of dishes! I don't wanna use any other bouillon rather than this one, LOVE it! 😁
