Herby Scones

A no cheese cheesy herby scone, made with nutritional yeast (much nicer than it sounds by the way, for the un-initiated out there).

Eat these fast, as (as is the way with all scones) they don’t keep.  Mind you, they’re pretty tasty, so it won’t be a problem most likely.

250g self raising flour

2 tsp dried chives

1/2 tsp dried dill

1/4 tsp dried thyme

6 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes (all good health food shops stock ’em)

a pinch of celery salt (or normal salt)

40g soya margarine

c.125ml soya milk


Sift the flour into a bowl, add the herbs, salt and nutritional yeast. Mix well, and then add the margarine and rub together (like making crumble, rub the mixture between your fingers until it looks like fine breadcrumbs).

Add most of the milk, mix with a wooden spoon and then your hands, so it’s a soft sticky dough (add more of the milk if you need to).

Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 2cm thick, and then cut into what ever shapes you fancy – circles, triangles, squares etc. re roll the dough to use it all.

Place on a baking tray and cook in a hot pre heated oven (230degrees c) for about 10mins until they are risen and golden.
