How to Use Bouillon


Bouillon is used in chicken dishes and serves as a base for soup. Even great gravies can be made with a bouillon base and it can enhance almost any recipe. Bouillon is also great as a substitute for "Mother's chicken soup" when you don't have the time to start from scratch.

  • Purchase bouillon from the supermarket. Find it in the soup aisle. There are generally two kinds: beef and chicken.

  • Start making the bouillon according to the directions on the package. Boil water, then drop the cube in the water until it dissolves.

  • Drink bouillon to help cure a sore throat or a cold. It also warms you up on a cold day. Add rice or noodles to make it heartier.

  • Prepare soup by adding ingredients to the bouillon. Chicken or beef, vegetables and potatoes make a tasty soup. Be creative using spices instead of salt.

  • Use bouillon as a base for beef or chicken gravy. Just thicken it with cornstarch or flour until you get the desired consistency.

Tips & Warnings

  • Take bouillon to work with you. As long as you have access to a microwave or hot water, you can use it to make tasty broth for lunch, break or even to drink at your desk while you work.
