Tofu scramble seasoning

I got tired of shelling out money for boxed tofu scramble seasoning, but I was also tired of throwing stuff together each time, only to find it wasn't what I wanted.

Time to make my own mix! Here's what I came up with to emulate the Fantastic Foods brand mix (this amount is a little more than I needed to season a pound of tofu with roughly an equal amount of vegetables):

1 Tbsp. no-salt herb/spice blend*
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (small flake--use more if you're using large flake)
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. turmeric (this makes it fairly light, as I like it--add more if you want more yellow color/bitter flavor)
1 tsp. salt

Shake everything up in a little jar and sprinkle it into your scramble until it tastes right. Add something hot if you're sassy like that.

* I used Mrs. Dash original blend, which I can't recommend for this purpose because of the citrus peel that's in there (doesn't do it for me in a scramble). Maybe her onion & herb blend or another brand entirely? I'd love to hear anyone's recommendations since this one definitely didn't have the flavor I was going for.

I figure I'll tweak this recipe a little more and then make a big batch to keep on hand and use as needed.
