Homemade Beef Bouillon Cubes

There is soy protein in bouillon cubes which you definitely need to avoid if you’re on a soy free diet.  There is a product called Better Than Bouillon that you could try.  But it is also easy, inexpensive and delicious to make your own bouillon cubes.  This is what I do to make mine.

Beef Bouillon Cubes

yields 24 cubes

3 cups minced celery
3 cups minced carrots
2 onions, minced
2 TBS salt (or less if you prefer)
1/2 lb ground beef
2-3 bay leaves

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.  Cook, covered, over low heat for 1 hour.  Remove the bay leaves and place remaining contents into a food processor and blend until smooth.  Pour into ice cube trays and freeze.  Once frozen, transfer cubes to freezer bag and store in the freezer.
