Hi everyone! I'm hoping I can get some help here. I was in the grocery store looking for some vegetable bouillon mix for rice. The problem is all the brands on the shelf contain MSG. I want to make my own so I was wondering what types of veggies do I have to dice up to make a nice flavoring for white rice? I'm pretty new to this kind of cooking, usually I just eat raw fruit and veggies.<br><br>
Thanks in advance

I use chopped celery, chopped onions, garlic, and a bay leaf as a good soup broth starter.<br>
Don't know about how it'd work as rice water, though.<br>
I eat the MSG cubes.<br>
There are specialty vegan fake chicken bouillon cubes that have no msg in them. Are there none where you live? Here's an example: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FEdward-Sons-Not-Chickn-Bouillon-2-5-Ounce%2Fdp%2FB00113ZTVK" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Edward-Sons-No.../dp/B00113ZTVK</a>

Thanks for your answer. Hmmm, I guess there is no secret. I just have to add larger concentrations of diced up ingredients I guess.

<p>I know this is old but vegi bouillon is good stuff to have. This is what I use, I found this recipe online somewhere long ago. You can vary it and omit what you don't have or add more of things you really like. I put the coriander cloves and bay in a tea ball. You can make it spicy by adding some red pepper. This recipe is the equivalent of one bouillon cube. I had to start making this because no one sells vegi bouillon around here.</p>
