Mock Chicken Seasoning

A delicious recipe from my dear friend Chef Sharon123 over at This dry mix is made from ingredients most folks have right in their pantry.  Perfect for making up a quick batch of 'chicken' flavored broth to use in recipes.

1 cup Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp marjoram
3 Tbsp parsley flakes
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp savory

Mix all ingredients together, and store in an air-tight container.  I use one (1) Tbsp of this mix for every one (1) cup of water.  *For the marjoram and savory, I used Herbs de Provence, but I think an all-purpose poultry seasoning would work well here too. (You can see the lavendar in the pic!)

I'm always able to find the vegetable broth flavored cubes, but never seem to find any "chicken" flavored ones that are vegan. Sometimes you just need a flavor other than palin old veggie broth to make a recipe really stand out.  I've used this mix for soup bases, flavoring seitan, coating tofu, and, most recently, as the broth for Chickpea Cutlets.  The possibilities are endless!
