Vegan MOFO: N is for Nutritional Yeast

When I searched nutritional yeast on my blog and came up with over 40 recipes I figured it was safe to say that I love nutritional yeast, though that wasn’t always the case.  At one time I felt that everything I tried it in had a funny after taste though I am not sure it that is because the things I tried had too much or it is an acquired taste.  All I know now is that I love it and that when my jar is only a quarter full I have to buy more immediately for fear of running out.

If you are new to nutritional yeast here is some info:
It is a great source of Vitamin B.
It is a complete protein.
Many of the vegan dishes you taste with a cheesy flavor use nutritional yeast to obtain it. Edible mushrooms are related to it.

I like it sprinkled on anything that I would have put parmesan cheese on in the past. When I was a kid my mom made popcorn with butter and parmesan cheese. It was my favorite. I know make my popcorn with vegan butter and while the butter is melting i throw in 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast for buttery cheesy goodness! The little vegan loves it also. I am just glad she doesn’t know it’s in the dame family as mushrooms because she probably wouldn’t touch it then!
