Stock Powder / All-Purpose Seasoning (Vegan, Paleo)

Stock Powder / All-Purpose Seasoning (Vegan, Paleo)

 

(Originally published on 10 March 16 at https://CornFreeHippie.com)

This free of corn Stock Powder is inspired by Vedgedout and adapted to my family's dietary needs. Before our garlic and onion intolerance became very real, I used both and this was fantastic. Even without the garlic and onion, this is a wonderful seasoning mix that I use for just about everything. (We have since been able to reintroduce garlic and onion which is a culinary blessing.) See notes below for some examples.

         Ingredients
2 oz. dried shiitake  mushrooms
3 Tbsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
2 Tbsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. dried thyme
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. (smoked) paprika
2 tsp. ground mustard
1 tsp. turmeric powder
dash cayenne pepper
1 tsp. celery seeds

1-2 cup(s) unfortified nutritional yeast (optional, but a great addition)

         Optional add-ins
6 Tbsp. onion powder
2 Tbsp. garlic granules (or 6 Tbsp w/o onion)

         Method
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until a fine powder results. Store in a glass jar in pantry.

         Notes 

● Rather than waste the powder in the  Blendtec jar, I add water, run the "Clean" setting & use the liquid as a sauce base. Another option is to run the "Hot Soup" setting & make stock. I tend to use this seasoning powder in much of my cooking. Some examples: soup, sauces like my Paleo Coconut Butter Alfredo, flavoring for my Cashew cheez crumbles/spread, ground beef, meatballs, burgers, sautéed or roasted veggies,  Kale Chips, etc.  The possibilities are endless & because this is made at home with safe for you ingredients, you can rest assured that an all-purpose seasoning on hand.

For soup: try 1 Tbsp per 1 cup of water & adjust according to your palate.
