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.

Thanks in advance

I use chopped celery, chopped onions, garlic, and a bay leaf as a good soup broth starter.
Don't know about how it'd work as rice water, though.
I eat the MSG cubes.
There are specialty vegan fake chicken bouillon cubes that have no msg in them. Are there none where you live? Here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/Edward-Sons-No.../dp/B00113ZTVK

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.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil or butter (or whatever you cook with)
  • 1/2 fresh yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, peeled, halved, stem removed
  • 2 fresh or dried bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh or dried thyme
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 tsp whole celery seeds, crushed
  • 2 whole cloves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
