Ranchy Cereal Mix

3 Cups cereal (a mix of Chex flavors if wanted, puffed rice or Cheerio type)
1 and ½ Cups of additional add-ins. Nuts, pretzels, crackers
2 TBSP melted Earth Balance
1 TBSP garlic flavored oil (or more EB)
1/2 TBSP worcestershire sauce (Find a vegan one, that doesn't use anchovies...last time I bought Whole Foods 365 brand was vegan)
½ TBSP soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground celery seed
3/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon (heaping) ground black pepper

Melt the Earth Balance, add the spices. Mix well. Dump the cereal in a bowl, add nuts, pretzels or crackers of choice. Pour the buttery spice mixture over it and mix very well. Bake at 250 for 1 hour and stir every 15 minutes. Dump onto paper towels and let cool. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
