Made these, but as usual, I didn't read properly so added the 1/2 cup nutritional yeast to the mix and added some other spices and they were AMAZING!

Delicious. I didn't have corn starch so I used flour. It was so tasty and I can see how you can make numerous variations of this dish with different spices!
