Nutritional Yeast

Even if you haven't gone hard core and traded your southern girl menu that includes cheese in every recipe for a vegan menu like me, you will still find many valuable uses for adding nutritional yeast to your pantry.

What is Nutritional Yeast?

Nutritional yeast is a nutty, white cheddary tasting, flavorful and flaky dehydrated yeast that is loaded with complex B vitamins, protein and fiber.

What does it go with?

Nutritional yeast is great on popcorn and baked potatoes. (Especially when drizzled with olive oil and sea salt!)

It will add a nutty, cheesy flavor to tofu used in making a vegan "ricotta," to pasta sauces.

Where do I buy it?

I purchase nutritional yeast in the bulk buying containers at the grocery store (where you scoop and weigh your own). I have also seen it in cans in the organic section and on Amazon.

My family lurvvvs these recipes:

Stuffed Shells

Parmesan substitute, used on baked potatoes, pasta, chili, and popcorn.

Enjoy!
