Great recipe. Thank you. Can we substitute vegetable bouillon with vegetable broth? Thanks.
Yes absolutely, the bouillon is just to enhance flavor. Instead of using the 1/4 cup of water, you can use 1/4 vegetable broth for the same flavor.
This looks really good. I don’t have an air-fryer. Is there a way to make this without having to have an air-fryer?
Thanks, Valerie. You can always bake it in an oven at 370F/190C for 10 mins until golden brown. It’s mentioned in step 1 of the recipe.
