Here are some bouillon replacements you can use:
- Chicken Stock. To replace a single chicken bouillon cube or 1 teaspoon of bouillon powder reconstituted with 1 cup of hot water, use 1 cup of chicken broth or stock. If the recipe doesn’t require reconstituting the chicken bouillon granules, use 1 cup of chicken stock for each one cube or one teaspoon of granules and decrease the other liquids in the recipe by 1 cup.
- Dry White Wine. Dry white wine gives the recipe a lighter, less salty flavor than using bouillon, but it still works well. Replace 1 teaspoon of bouillon granules or 1 cube with 1/2 cup of white wine and decrease other liquids in the recipe by 1/2 cup. Don’t use wine if you or anyone you are serving is sensitive to alcohol.
- Soy Sauce. Though it doesn’t taste exactly like chicken bouillon, they’re similar in saltiness. For each 1 teaspoon of granules or 1 cube of bouillon, use 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Taste the recipe before adding any additional salt or salted products — the sodium in the soy sauce might be enough.
