Alyce's Chicken Stock Powder Thermomix Recipe (without the chicken or the nasties!)

Alyce's Chicken Stock Powder Thermomix Recipe (without the chicken or the nasties!)

Recently, I’ve found myself cooking with a lot of chicken-style stock cubes. These add big flavour to dishes with pretty much no effort… so you can imagine I’m a fan! But, I really disdain purchasing them… the individual wrapping for each cube, the palm oil… eek. It’s not how I like to cook (or eat!). So, like many of my best recipes, I set about making a HOMEMADE version! And I’m pretty chuffed with the results, if I do say so myself. My version is -

  • MSG free
  • Palm oil free
  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free
  • Soy free
  • Nut free

… and it tastes just like CHICKEN STOCK POWDER!

Whip up a batch and store it in a jar in the pantry. Use 2 teaspoons whenever a recipe calls for a stock cube. Perfect!

Makes 2 Cups


200g salt (fine or rock salt)
2 tbsp dried parsley flakes
2 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tbsp brown sugar 
1 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp celery seeds
1 tsp ground turmeric


Thermomix & Thermo Cooker:

  1. Place all ingredients in TC bowl, mill for 2 minutes, speed 10.


  1. Place all ingredients in a small food processor and blitz for 2 minutes on high, or until a fine powder is formed.

Store in an airtight glass jar. Use whenever stock cubes or stock powder is specified in a recipe (2 tsp per stock cube). Healthier, better for the environment, cheaper!
