A chicken-style seasoning can be a great way to flavor dishes when eating plant-based or vegan. It is very versatile and adds a depth of flavor that enhances soups, sauces, entrees and other savory dishes. McKay’s Chicken-style Seasoning Vegan is a powdered seasoning we have used and appreciated for years; however, it is not always easily available for everyone everywhere. I have in this recipe made a similar seasoning that has equivalent sodium content and flavors that work well to make a delicious replacement for McKay’s when it cannot be obtained. Or for those who have allergies to some ingredient, when making their own, they can replace that ingredient with an appropriate substitute.
It is really critical to measure as accurately as possible when making this so the sodium per serving remains constant. Make sure your measures are full and level. Yeast flakes are very salty; too much or too little of any ingredient can make a difference in the final outcome.
