Magickal Cheezy Seasoning 

If you have been following my blog, you may have noticed that only two of my seasoning or spice blends so far have “magickal” in the title. While all of my spice blends really are wonderful, I reserve the magickal distinction for blends that transform common ingredients into something exceptional. My new Magickal Cheezy Seasoning fits this criteria and I hope you love it as much as I do! Here are just a few of the things you can make with it!

Cheezy Popcorn:

Vegan Nacho Cheese Doritos:

Sour Cream & Cheddar Potato Chips

Cheeze Sauce:

And Vegan Queso Dip!

Here are the ingredients you will need to make your own Magickal Cheezy Seasoning (I also have a low sodium version now if you eat a low salt diet.)

You need quite a lot of nutritional yeast (1 7/8 cups) for this recipe, so I recommend buying it in bulk for cost-effectiveness. It is difficult to fit a big bag in photos, though, so I refill the small container from the bulk bag. This is the one I buy online from Vitacost:

I have not tested my Magickal Cheezy Seasoning without the lactic acid. However, you can substitute vitamin C crystals for the lactic acid in my Vegan Parmesan Cheeze recipe, so it might work to do that here as well. I buy Druid’s Grove lactic acid from Amazon, and I definitely think it is worth it to have on hand:

Weigh (or measure) all of the ingredients and add them to your blender jar:

Blend thoroughly until the mixture is a fine powder:

Transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge.

This magickal cheeze powder is amazing on popcorn, and makes fantastic cheeze sauce and vegan queso dip as well!

  • 133.4 g (1 7/8 c) Nutritional Yeast Mini Flakes
  • 23.6 g (1 TBS + 3/4 tsp) Salt
  • 9.6 g (2 1/2 tsp) Sugar
  • 9.2 g (1 TBS) Vegan Lactic Acid
  • 5.6 g (2 tsp) Onion Powder
  • 4.6 g (1 1/4 tsp) Celery Salt
  • 3.6 g (1 tsp) Granulated Garlic
  • 3.6 g (1 1/2 tsp) Paprika
  • 3.6 g (2 1/4 tsp) Turmeric
  • 2.0 g (1 tsp) Dry Mustard Powder
  • 1.2 g (1/2 tsp) Cayenne Pepper


  1. Weigh (or measure) all of the ingredients into a blender jar. If you are substituting vitamin C crystals for the lactic acid, know that I have not tested this, and it will be an experiment. I would try using 3.6 g (3/4 tsp) of the vitamin C crystals instead of the lactic acid.

  2. Put the lid on the blender, and blend on high until the mixture is a fine powder.

  3. Transfer to an airtight container, and store in the fridge.

  1. How much of a cup is 7/8 cup? Is it more or less 3/4 cup? I’m lost with this measurement, never seen it before! Thank you.

    1. The lactic acid (or vitamin C) gives the seasoning an authentic cheesy tang. You could make it without either, but it won’t have quite the same flavor. It really is very good with the lactic acid and it is well worth ordering some. If you live outside of the U.S., I can help you to find another place from which to order the lactic acid.

I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment!
