Homemade Chicken Bouillon Powder Recipe

        I love chicken bouillon but I do not always have it on hand.   I wanted to make some from scratch without truly making it.  True chicken bouillon takes homemade broth/stock and dehydrating it for hours and hours until it becomes a powder.  This recipe is the shortcut answer to homemade bouillon.  Although it does not have any "chicken" in it, it tastes surprisingly like "real" chicken bouillon because of all the herbs and spices it has in it.  It tastes truly authentic and adds a great depth of flavor so try it out and see what you think.  

      Homemade Chicken Bouillon Powder Recipe


 1 c. nutritional yeast

1 1/2 T. sea salt

3 T. onion powder

3 T. dried parsley

1 T. garlic powder

2 tsp. celery seed

2 tsp. dried thyme

2 tsp. sage

1 tsp. rosemary

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. pepper


    Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or spice grinder until it is a fine powder.  Store in an airtight container such as a canning jar.   This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of powdered chicken bouillon which didn't quite fill a pint sized glass canning jar.

    To use:  Mix 1 teaspoon of chicken bouillon powder in 1 cup of boiling water to create a lovely broth. 



     This bouillon can help add flavor to a variety of dishes including soups, stews, pastas, gravies, sauces and casseroles.  I also like to add chicken bouillon powder to boiling water when making rice
