Hi I made this and was wondering would it work without the stock cube as I found it tasted quite salty with the stock cube…Thank you

    Hi Audrey,

    Yes you could – alternatively you could use a lower sodium stock cube to make the stock, or use a light/low sodium soy sauce which would also reduce the saltiness ????

Would this work with garlic purée and ground ginger instead?
