1/2 teaspoon dried basil — crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Shucks, really have to check my ingredients out properly, I’m trying to be healthy and it turned out that the vegetable stock cubes I used from Whole Foods were extremely high-fat:(
Next time I will use nonfat vegetable broth for this recipe instead
