Homemade Leftover Vegetable Bouillon


IMG_4126

I’ve been having a little fun with my food dehydrator lately.  Not a fancy dehydrator but a $30 job that I picked up at a garage sale for $5.  The roots of this dish come from clean out the fridge day.  Sometimes the best foods comes from humble beginnings.  This tasty bouillon was made from some sad-but-not-gone vegetables – leftover tomato slices from a recent tailgate party, leftover onions, half-limp carrot sticks and celery hearts, wilted basil leaves and some green onions from the garden.

To make the bouillon:

I like the mix of tomatoes, onions, carrots and celery, green onion and basil but dehydrate whatever leftover vegetables you have.  Once vegetables are dry and brittle, put it in a food processor or coffee grinder and grind until the mixture becomes a powder.  Store in an airtight container.

To use bouillon:

For each cup of water, add one teaspoon bullion and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Bring to a boil.  Simmer a few minutes.

Makes a tasty vegetable ramen!

Eat Well!
