  1. 4 stars
    Just noticed the rice vinegar and I live pretty remote, (3 hours roundtrip to a grocery store on a Sunday). And I don’t have any right now. Any other suggestions?

    • You can use white vinegar with a bit of sugar. But I would start with 1/4 of the amount and add up from there. Rice vinegar is very mild and sweeter than regular vinegar. Hope that helps!


  2. Hi Dani,
    The recipe calls for a 1/3 cup chicken stock – do you know how many oxo/knorr cubes I should us for this? I’m a bit confused 🙂

    • Hey Emily,

      I would just look at however many it takes to hydrate to 1 cup. Then just use 1/3 of the cup. Or if it’s like 3 cubes per cup than just divide to get to the closest quantity.

      Hope that helps!
