The bouillon cube you buy at the supermarket is certainly not one of the healthiest foods, it is well known. Besides salt, the granulated bouillon cube very often contains monosodium glutamate as a flavor enhancer, as well as colorings and preservatives. The vegetables used are certainly not first fruits and if you don’t buy organic nuts you cannot know how they were grown, often industrial agriculture uses high degree chemical herbicides, pesticides and fungicides of toxicity that contaminate the vegetables.
What not everyone knows is that the vegetable nut is very easy to produce yourself using vegetables from your own garden. The homemade bucket offers many advantages: first of all, it allows you to know what you are eating, and then you are sure to bring a totally healthy product to the table. It’s also cheap, because it’s made from self-grown vegetables, you can use surplus from your garden.
Producing the granulated walnut yourself also means making it according to your own taste: you can personalize the recipe by inserting aromatic herbs and choosing your favorite seasonal vegetables.

drying. To be used in the vegetable cube recipe, the vegetables must be dried. The best method is to use a dryer, I am very proud of my Biosec Domus from Dryers Tauro, which I consider to be the best home solution. Those who do not have this instrument can dry in a ventilated oven, at the minimum temperature, although the heat of the oven may dissipate some of the flavor while the dryer is operating at a controlled temperature. To be dried, vegetables must be cut into thin slices and placed on trays or drying trays. The drying time depends on the instrument used and the type of vegetables, however, it can be seen with the naked eye when they are dehydrated.
How much salt to use The amount of salt is variable, I recommend weighing the pulses and adding coarse salt equivalent to half the weight of the pulses.
Mixture of salt and vegetables . Once the vegetables and herbs are dry, the coarse salt is added and mixed in, reducing everything to a well-blended powder.
Storage room . Homemade walnut powder, if properly dried, will keep for several months, I recommend storing it in an airtight glass jar and storing it in a cool, dry place with no light to retain all the flavor. The powder obtained can be dosed at will with a teaspoon to obtain an excellent homemade, healthy and organic vegetable broth.
