๐Ÿ” HOMEMADE CHICKEN BOUILLON POWDER
https://joyfilledeats.com/chicken-broth-substitute
[To make broth: 1tbsp powder + 8oz water]

Combine and grind in a food processor, small blender or coffee/spice grinder.

*In my personal opinion, this tastes NOTHING remotely close to chicken bouillon – it isn’t bad at all but it just tastes like nutritional yeast to me. Maybe make a small batch and see if YOU like it. Keep in mind my autoimmune issues have screwed up my taste buds… ๐Ÿคฃ

โ–ช๏ธ2tbsp Garlic Powder
โ–ช๏ธ2tbsp Italian Seasoning
โ–ช๏ธ1tbsp Sea Salt (optional)
โ–ช๏ธยฝtbsp Tumeric (optional)

Similar idea to Irish Potato Nachos except using Sunchokes since I have them and need to use them up. Here is a great Loaded Irish Nachos version of you want to try it out.

Big storm front came through dropping our temps into the teens and the barometric swing had me hurting.

I decided to take a Nana nap and when I got up, I wasn’t really hungry so I finished the can of beans with some Fritos and had a bottle of water and a Red Pear… Then I was done for the day…

๐Ÿ’‰ If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.
