DEAR KAREN: Some recipes call for bouillon cubes or granules, and some call for broth. Are those ingredients interchangeable?

Yes, they are. Sometimes speedy recipes will call for broth or granules since they're quicker than bouillon cubes. However, one bouillon cube or 1 teaspoon of granules dissolved in 1 cup of boiling water may be substituted for 1 cup of broth in any recipe.
