Making it taste good without meat…..

Combine sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, celery seed, allspice, and black pepper to make your own “poultry” seasoning. Blend chili powder, paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, mustard powder, brown sugar, salt, and pepper to create your own spice rub for seitan steaks. Ingredients like tomato paste, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, and miso are rich in umami and can help create a depth of flavor in your vegetable dishes.
