Spicy veggie bouillon in 10 minutes

What is your reaction when you need to add vegetable broth cubes to your favorite recipe, and just realize that a broth (broth cubes) are finished?!

Calm down! Today I found the way to stay calm in this situation and make a rich spicy veggie bouillon to nourish home cooking in just a few minutes:) No gluten, no palm oil, no starch or other “goodies”:)


  • bay leaf, 3-4 pcs
  • allspice (Jamaica pepper or pimenta), 5-10 pcs
  • white horseradish, dry powdered, 1 tsp
  • marjoram (Origanum majorana), 1 tsp
  • nutmeg, freshly grated or milled, 1/4 tsp
  • bell pepper flakes, 1 Tbsp
  • water, 1-2 cups (100-200 ml)
Spices for veggie bouillon

How to make it:

  • mix all species in a small pot
  • pour hot, just boiled water (boiled in a kettle, for example) to a mixture and bring to a boil on a stove
  • simmer for 5 minutes
  • remove from a stove-top and let it sit for 5 minutes more
  • strain a broth. It is ready!

Important notes:

  • Take just minimum of nutmeg, in bigger amount it gives bitter taste to food
  • Better to use species in flakes or whole leaves, whole grains, because if using all ingredients in powder form, the ready broth would be cloudy, even if filtered
  • If prefer to change the initial ingredients listed above, choose those which are not too spicy-hot, or replace only with one hot spicy ingredient
  • Simmer species for no longer than 5 minutes, because bay leafs give bitter taste to food if overcooked

Prophylactic self-isolation for deep inner relaxation. Day 22nd.

I probably have never been so peacefully relaxed as on this day.

Honestly, I really don’t remember any other day when I let myself just BE, without any inner feeling of worry about this or that. Or having feelings of guilt about being lazy and continue doing something useful for others or myself,.. even during holiday time somewhere on a beach…

I wrapped in few wool blankets, cuddled in the lounge chair on the balcony and turned my face with eyes closed to the early-evening Sun. I felt the caressing of the Sun on my cheeks, its untouchable beams wrapping me totally in a shiny cocoon, and little by little shifted to the Wizard Existence…

P.S. Warm thanks to a special friend, who always helps me with English grammar and words’ meaning:)
