  • ¼ tsp of black pepper
  • ½ tsp of cumin
  • ½ tsp of curry powder
  • ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp of chilli powder or paprika
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping Tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • ½ Tbsp of salt-free poultry seasoning
  • ¼ tsp of onion powder
  • ¼ cup of ground golden flax seed


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
