What a find! For dietary reasons, using purchased bouillon cubes are not an option for me. This is from Angela Papaiz who contributed to the Brazilian Children's Fund Cookbook. Prep time depends on how fast you chop. LOL I will over estimate on my timing.

I have made this a lot. I am finally reviewing it. This really iust amazingly simple and useful. It really adds a lot of flavor to every thing I cook with it. 10,000,000 times better than any store bought bouillon you can buy! Plus no MSG! I do Reduce the salt by half though. Even that is a touch salty. I might try 1/2 tbs. next time. Thanks!
