This is an all-purpose seasoning that can be used to make vegetarian broth and used in soups, gravies, entrées, and you name it. I usually double or triple the recipe when I make it.

When using this seasoning in recipes, avoid holding the container over steaming food as the seasoning may take on moisture and become caked. Use a measuring spoon to dip the seasoning out of the container.

This recipe can be made using only No Salt for those on sodium (salt) restrictions. 


  • 1½ cups nutritional yeast flakes (not Brewer’s Yeast)
  • 3 Tbsp onion powder
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1-2 Tbsp ground Turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp celery seed *
  • 3 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1 Tbsp Himalayan or sea salt or 1-2 Tbsp No Salt (uses potassium) if on sodium restrictions


Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until very smooth. Store in a glass container or BPA-free plastic container with secure wide-mouth lid.


*  One teaspoon of celery seed contains 8 calories, broken down as: 54% fat (0.5 g), 31% carbs (0.83g), and 15% protein (0.36g). It also contains 28 mg of potassium, which may help the sodium-potassium balance.
