  • 1⁄4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 1⁄2 teaspoons Savory Spice Blend
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  • Heat 1⁄4 cup of water in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, then cover and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper and cauliflower, then cover and cook, stirring occasion- ally, until tender, about 5 minutes.
