Actually it is seasoning in general and that is the secret to all good recipes. But with vegetarian recipes it can be a little tricky.  In our little sub-culture of vegetarianism that has been around for more than 100 years we have developed some seasonings blends that help make vegetarian recipes quicker and tastier to make.  The most common seasonings in a lot of our recipes are Chicken-style seasoning and Beef-style seasoning.

Contrary to popular belief these seasonings contain no animal products whatsoever and are actually easy to make at home.  Check out my chicken-style seasoning recipe below.
If you don’t have time to make your own, there are many brands available my favorites are from the Vegetarian Express.  I use the beef-style in gravy, burgers and soups and the chicken-style in almost everything, like this tofu egg salad.
