Umami-Packed Vegetable Bouillon Is The Perfect Swap For Nutritional Yeast
When you're out of nutritional yeast, a great vegan replacement is vegetable bouillon. It contains roasted and dried vegetables that provide a savory flavor profile.
Bouillon comes in both powdered and paste forms or pressed cubes. Any of the forms can be used as long as your recipe contains enough moisture to dissolve the bouillon.
Some bouillons are very concentrated, so you might want to taste a small amount to be sure you're aiming for the right quantity when you use the product.
Remember, however, that nutritional yeast is low in salt, and bouillon will likely have a bit more sodium, so use a lighter hand when seasoning.
