What is \'nutritional yeast\'? This recipe calls for a heaped tbsp of nutritional yeast. I have Googled it but came up with no results. Help please.

Nutritional yeast is a yellow flaked product that vegans use to make cheese sauces or give cheese flavor to any dishes without dairy cheese. You can buy it at most health food stores or at Whole Foods and Clarks.

My picky little one wasn't going to touch them, then I told him they were like okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake). I'm a liar because they look similar but taste very different. He loved them and ate two big ones:)

An amazing testimony on how Dr Brave save my marriage form Divorce, My name is Linda Marian i live in London, uk, and I\'m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn\'t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{[email protected]}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn\'t call me for the past seven {8}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelldrbrave.weebly.com/} and you can also reach Dr Brave through his mobile number +2348072370762,if you are in any condition like this or you have any problem contact Dr Brave ,{ [email protected] }, Thanks for reading.

Can you use wheat flour instead of the chick pea and rice flours?

Hi Sophie,

Wheat might add a strong taste to it. If you\'re not sensitive to gluten, why don\'t you try all purpose and cornstarch?
