Nutritional Yeast

Have you heard of “Nooch” or Nutritional Yeast? It is an ingredient popular among vegans and plant-based folk. It is a yellow, flaky substance that is a great source of vitamin B12, which is something that many people, especially vegans, do not get enough of.* It is helpful in imparting a “cheesy” texture to foods and helping to thicken them a bit.

I’ll admit I was a wee bit intimidated to use it at first but once I tried it I realized what I had been missing. Most health food stores sell it either pre-packaged or in the bulk foods section.

How to Use Nutritional Yeast:

  • Sprinkle it on popcorn
  • Sprinkle it on pasta
  • Top a salad with it
  • Mix it with equal parts almond meal and use it as a “parmesan” to sprinkle on pasta.
  • Use the above mixture to sprinkle on cauliflower before roasting. Ooh la la!

If you can’t find nooch in a store locally, you can purchase it here on Amazon. By doing so, I receive a very tiny percentage of the sales, which goes towards supporting the upkeep of this site.
