10 Recipes That Can Be Transformed with Nutritional Yeast

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Nutritional yeast is unique. It’s not an ingredient you’d find in your average grocery store, and it’s probably alien to your non-vegan family and friends. Yet, for the health conscious, this is a go-to staple in their pantries. And they go through great lengths to find this magical “hippy dust” or nooch at health food stores or purchase it online.

So why is nutritional yeast — which looks kind of like fish food, to everyone else — so revered in the health-conscious community? Well, for starters, nutritional yeast is the only source of vitamin B-12 for vegans and vegetarians alike because it contains no animal or animal byproducts. Just 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast will satisfy your daily requirement of the vitamin.

Not to mention, nutritional yeast contains 18 amino acids (which provides complete protein). They’re also packed with other vitamins and minerals, making them a nutritional powerhouse for all.

Plus, they have a cheesy, almost nutty taste to them, which makes them addicting. The nutrition label on this “hippy dust” might say 3 tablespoons, but I can guarantee you’ll eat more! Nutritional yeast is good on top of almost everything and good mixed in almost everything. Start your lifelong love for nutritional yeast with these 10 recipes that call for them:

 1. Warm ‘Vegveeta’ Cheese Dip
