Beef Flavored Seasoning

Yield: About 1 cup dry mix/about 22 cups broth



  1. Using a blender or coffee grinder, grind mushrooms into a fine powder.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend briefly to mix.

How to Use as a Broth

  • Mix 2 tsp of beef flavored seasoning for every cup of water. Bring to boil and simmer briefly for flavors to meld.
  • Add ¼ teaspoon of salt for every cup of water. If you prefer substitute the salt with one tablespoon of soy sauce. When making a large volume of broth, like for a soup, you may want to experiment and use a combination of both salt and soy sauce.
  • For a darker, richer color add a few drops of Kitchen Bouquet.

How to Use as a Seasoning

  • Add as a flavor enhancer to veggie burger or add a generous sprinkle on tofu slices before putting them in the oven or Air Fryer.
  • Basically, just sprinkle Beef Flavored Seasoning on whatever you are preparing as you would any other seasoning. I interchange Beef Flavored Seasoning with Chicken Flavored Seasoning, depending on the flavor I want.

Note on Soy Sauce

  • When making a broth soy sauce is both a flavorful seasoning and a color enhancer. With going whole food plant-based, this has become a staple ingredient in my home. When using soy sauce, use a good quality. Look for naturally brewed/fermented and check the ingredients. There should be no added sugar, corn syrup, flavor enhancers or caramel coloring. One that I have been using for years is Yamasa. When teaching cooking classes I use gluten free options like Braggs liquid soy seasoning or Tamari made by San-J.
