# Substituting Bouillon Cubes with Granules?

If a recipe calls for chicken bouillon cubes and you only have granules, do you know how many cubes equals so many tablespoons of granules?

Usually you add 1 cube to make 1 cup of bullion. How many tsp of granules does it say on jar to make 1 cup of bullion? That would be the amount you use to substute for 1 cube.

Depending on the brand of granules (and the brand of cubes, for that matter), it's usually one teaspoon of granules to one cup of water. The directions are right on the jar's label, though, to be fair, they may be a bit small.

But if I only have cubes I can't read the granules jar, can I, to know how much granules for a cup of H2o. Maybe just answer the question.

My experience is that one cube = one teaspoon.

1 TBSP = 3 teaspoons, 1 tsp of granules would be 1/3 Tbsp of granules

1 Tbsp = 3 tsp, so 1 tsp of granules = 1/3 Tbsp granules (more than a 1/4 Tbsp but less than 1/2 Tbsp)
