This savory blend of sage, onion, and garlic is the most popular poultry seasoning in our house during the holiday season! It's an easy to make blend of classic Christmas flavors that's delicious in stuffing (dressing), sprinkled on crispy smashed potatoes, vegan gravy, baked vegetables, vegan turkey, and so much more!
As a vegan cook, incorporating traditional flavors/seasonings in meatless dishes is a wonderful way to bring familiar flavors and comfort to vegan recipes. I was inspired by Wicked Healthy's Onion Sage spice (not available here), so I created my own savory sage spice blend. It's the perfect balance of earthy sage, sweet bits of onion, pungent garlic, and a whisper of sweetness.
Creating your own customized spice blends is quick and easy, affordable, and convenient - here's a few more we use all the time: taco seasoning, shawarma spice blend, madras curry blend, southwest spice blend.
Sage & Onion Seasoning Ingredients
This simple homemade sage and onion blend is quick to throw together with ground spices you probably have in the pantry right now. Here's what you'll need:
- ground sage - prominent, savory flavor traditionally used in poultry seasoning and in buttery sausage stuffing/dressing recipes at Christmas or Thanksgiving.
- minced onion/onion flakes - a popular and complimentary flavor pairing with sage. Can sub granulated, but the small pieces of flaked onion are spectacular when baked and crunchy.
- granulated garlic - dehydrated, ground garlic. Adds potent, concentrated garlic flavor.
- coriander - dried, crushed seeds of the cilantro plant
- dry parsley - the most widely used herb in the world. Adds color and light flavor.
- salt - coarse ground sea salt/kosher salt, elevates the flavors
- pepper - coarse ground black pepper for some heat
- sugar - just a pinch to balance the flavors
- red pepper flakes - optional for extra heat and color
So Easy to Make!
Just mix the spices all together in a jar and shake well to incorporate. Taste and adjust seasonings to your personal taste - make it sweeter, saltier, more savory.
Once you have this savory sage and onion blend on hand, you'll find yourself sprinkling it on everything! Of course during Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's the savory seasoning of choice for popular dishes like for vegan turkey dressing, vegan turkey, mushroom gravy, and potatoes; but here's a few other ways to enjoy it:
- sprinkle on French fries or sweet potato fries
- brings sweet roasted cauliflower to life
