I Dare You to Think of a Meal Where You CAN’T Use Nutritional Yeast

July 3, 2009

How can something that looks so much like the fish food I used to feed my goldfish be so useful and be so yummy? I have no idea, but I’m so glad that nutritional yeast flakes have found their way into my life. Some say it’s a good replacement for cheese, in terms of flavour, and I can see where those people are coming from, but I wouldn’t say it tastes much like cow’s cheese. However with that said, it does have a distinct taste and that’s what makes it so great!

There is so much you can do with the stuff, yet so little you can’t do with it. Who else drools over food such as these?:

However, my favourite of all has to be using it at breakfast. Nothing beats a hearty bowl of oatbran mixed with nutrional yeast at the end. It’s filling, healthy and gosh darn scrumptious.

SN850857If you want to enjoy this too, simply use:

  • 40g oatbran (Or oats or other hot cereal)
  • 275ml soyamilk, other milk, or a mixture of chosen milk and water
  • A good rounded tablespoon of yeast flakes, more to taste.

Cook the oatbran to packet instructions, I nuke mine in the mic for convinience. When cooked, don’t worry if the oatbran appears to be a bit runny, because adding the yeast flakes thickens it up. After it’s cooked, add the yeast and mix well untill dissolved and mixed in. I then like to sprinkle a little more on top. Sets you up for the day in style 😀
