I picked up some nutritional yeast at Whole Foods (breaking my no shopping rule until Feb1, but that was all I bought) to try, and here is what I made:
1 - popcorn with nutritional yeast - tasted like cheese popcorn. I really liked this!!!
2- Mae inspired pizza on a flat out wrap with broccoli, avocado, lentils, chick pea patties, and some cheese with Mae's humnut sauce (hummus, nutritional yeast and water).
Now I'm looking for more recipes to use this nutritional yeast, next up- Mae's Pumpkin Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream! - but in the meantime here is what I've found out about it:
great for vegetarians - B12 and B6
it comes in flakes
described as a nutty, cheesy flavor
2 tbs = 60 calories = 7g protein=70% vit B12, 23% vit B6, 3g fiber +tons of amino acids
use in place of parmesan cheese
If you have any experience with it - pass it along!
