- 125 grams sweet peppers
- 125 grams onion
- 4 to 6 garlic cloves

- ½ kilo of ingredients (or 1.1 pounds) to ¼ cup of salt
Freeze in small jars, but keep one in the fridge for quick meals
Use 1 teaspoon per cup of water in your recipes.
I know it sounds like too much salt, but you'll have to trust me on this. The salt is a natural preservative and you have to use a sufficient quantity to prevent the growth of bacteria. The great thing about using this vegetable bouillon in a recipe is that you will not need any additional salt.
Think about adding basil, rosemary, oregano, spinach, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, sun-dried tomatoes, or anything else you like for some variation in the recipe. I'm sure you will come up with your favorite combination.
