I discovered nutritional yeast this year. It took quite a while for me to even know it existed but since I found out about it, I've been hooked! Many vegetarians and vegans like using nutritional yeast for it's cheesy, nutty flavor.
Pizza - Top a pizza with different roasted vegetables and a great marinara sauce and add nutritional yeast - if you don't eat cheese - you'll get the cheesy flavor.
Bread Crumbs - Use nutritional yeast to hold together veggie burgers or any other patty that would normally require bread crumbs.
Pasta - Skip the grated parmesan and sprinkle nutritional yeast atop warm pasta along with some garlic powder and a drizzle of olive oil. The combination of flavors makes for a dish that doesn’t miss a thing.
Roasted Vegetables - Stir nutritional yeast into roasted vegetables instead. When warmed by the vegetables, the yeast creates a creamy, smooth sauce.
Roasted Nuts - Roast nuts that have been tossed in some nutritional yeast. The roasted flavor will be augmented and the nuts will have a slightly cheesy coating on the skin.
Creamy Cooked Greens - Cooked spinach pairs well with cream and cheese, but you can replace those heavier add-ins with a tablespoon or two of nutritional yeast and then watch as the bare spinach suddenly becomes decadently creamy and bold in flavor.
Baby Formula - If a baby is using formula in place of breast feeding, it is recommended to add nutritional yeast to the infant formula. Nutritional yeast provides B12, iron and folic acid, which are essential to growth.
