    1. Hi, Tiberia.

      According to our copy of The Cook’s Thesaurus, “Maggi seasoning sauce can be substituted with equal parts dark soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. The popular liquid seasoning can also be replaced using Thai sweet soy sauce or even mushroom soy sauce. Many grocery stores offer a variety of other brands of liquid seasonings, such as Bragg Liquid Aminos and Knorr Liquid Seasoning, that replace Maggi seasoning.” The dark soy sauce/Worcestershire sauce combo works well. A standard measure is one tsp per cube, but you can adjust for taste.
