A few months ago I posted these delicious instant noodle cups, which are perfect for work or school lunches (for teens, not so much little kids). They’re like an adult version of two minute noodles, I love them.
Anyway, here’s the recipe for the vegetable broth powder in a separate post. I know it’s listed in the noodle cup recipe but, for the sake of those who search for just low FODMAP bouillon and not the complete cup of noodles, I’ll post it separately so they can find it too.
This bouillon powder is vegan, doesn’t contain anything that’s too difficult to find in the supermarket and adds so much FODMAP friendly flavour to any meal, be it a pasta sauce, a soup or simply enhancing a vegetable stock. It keeps for a good 6 months when stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
Don’t forget, if you’d like to receive new recipes via email, you can sign up at the top right of this page. Facebook is very unreliable, it only shares my posts with about 10% of my “likers” because I don’t pay to promote them. That just makes life difficult for everyone. But hey, that’s Facebook these days.
- Nutritional yeast is FODMAP friendly, as yeast is not a FODMAP. Yeast intolerances do exist, however, so if you have one then this recipe is not for you.
- Castor sugar and dextrose are both low FODMAP.
- Green leek powder is low FODMAP, the serving size depends on the weight difference after desiccation. For example, I normally reduce the weight by 50%, so instead of 28 g being the safe serving size, it is now 14 g.
- Rosemary, thyme, parsley, pepper flakes, sage, black pepper, paprika, coriander seed, cumin, ginger and turmeric are all low FODMAP in the small amount you’d consume in 1 tsp. of this powder blend.
- The herbs and spices can, however, be higher in food chemicals such as salicylates and histamine. These are not FODMAPs but it is important to keep in mind if you have any additional intolerances.
Vegetable Bouillon Powder
Serving size: 1 tsp makes 1 cup of stock when mixed with boiling water.
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp. kosher salt
- 2 tsp. dextrose or castor sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp. green leek powder
- 1 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 tsp. dried rosemary
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 3/4 tsp. dried sage
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. paprika (smoked is best but normal is fine)
- 1/2 tsp. ground coriander seed
- 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric
Measure all the ingredients into the bowl of your food processor and then blitz for 30 seconds to turn the chunky ingredients (sage, nutritional yeast, pepper flakes) into a fine powder.
Put into an airtight jar and store in a cool dark place for up to 6 months – make sure you label and date the container. When you wish to use it, dissolve 1 tsp. of bouillon powder in 1 cup of boiling water, or add it in separately to dishes, such as stews, to enhance the flavour.
