I'm almost a year vegan now - and I finally invested in some nutritional yeast. Anyone have any good recipes to share?

I use it for chickpea flour omelets. I mix in a bowl, 1/2 cup chickpea flour, 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, pinch of cumin powder, pinch of black pepper, then add 1/2 to 2/3 cup cold water and stir to make a thick batter. I heat a nonstick pan on low heat with a little cooking oil spray or water, then spread my batter around the pan into a large circle. I add chopped spinach, tomatoes and a dollop of salsa onto the pancake, then use my spatula to fold it in half over itself into a sort of omelet. After 30 seconds or so, I flip to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds, til the veggies are heated. This makes a nice "eggy" like high protein breakfast dish.

I also add a few tablespoons of nutritional yeast to soups as they simmer for a boost of flavor. This works well with split pea soup or black bean soup.

One of my ultimate favorite sauces that involves nutritional yeast is this pumpkin "cheese" sauce from the Oh She Glows blog (I have made MANY of her recipes and they have never failed me): Vegan Pumpkin Mac ‘n Cheeze Sauce ? Oh She Glows

I just add it to most of my food, which right now is mostly tacos with a mixture of beans, lentils, rice, veggies in corn tortillas, and soups. I either just mix it into the food, or with the tacos, sometimes I'll sprinkle some onto the tortilla, then cover it with the filling. If you just sprinkle it on top, it can be kind of dry in your mouth, so it's better mixed into something wet.

It's really good on popcorn as a coating, but I haven't figured out how to like popcorn without oil - or to get it to stick to the popcorn without oil. I am thinking I might try dipping kernels one by one into balsamic vinegar then into the yeast as I eat them, but haven't tried it yet :-)

I used to sprinkle soy sauce on my air popped popcorn and it was really good due to the saltiness. I don't think that would be good with nutritional yeast though. I avoid soy now and simply spray a little bit of coconut oil spray on my popcorn for a little flavor.

I bought my first bag of the stuff recently. (Trader Joe's brand) I made "cheese" this weekend and used it in the recipe. The yeast is interesting, it looks kind of like yellow instant potatoes, and smells pretty good. I haven't tried it on anything else yet!

I tried to make a mac n cheese with it on Sunday and I did NOT like it at all. I guess I need to keep trying!

I'm not sure - it was with quinoa and you heated up about 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast, some dijon mustard and garlic powder. It just had the oddest smell to me and I couldn't really get past that

That doesn't sound too good to me, either.

I made this cheese the other day and had some on tortilla chips. It wasn't bad. I think it would be good for mac and cheese.

Oh that does look really good. The starchiness from the potatoes and the sweetness from the carrots. I like that it doesn't use cashews.
