Golden toasted flakes of inactive yeast are a wonderful way to add a savoury, cheese-like flavour to recipes. Nutritional yeast is a unique vegan food with a pleasantly cheesy flavour and it packs a powerful nutritional punch! It is rich in B vitamins, including B12, and provides 5 grams of protein per 10g serving. Yeast flakes are great in dips, salad dressing, sauces and spreads, or sprinkled directly over salads and hot dishes as a condiment. This nutritional yeast is made from a variety of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae (aka brewer’s yeast) that is produced on sugar beet molasses before it is inactivated by heat and roller dried.
How to Use These nutritional yeast flakes are a delicious addition to any number of raw or cooked savoury recipes. Combine with Tahini for a delicious spread or dip, or as a base for sauces and dressings. Use yeast flakes in place of cheese in fresh basil or coriander pesto. For yummy pasta sauce, gently simmer coconut milk till slightly reduced before adding crushed nuts and veggies of choice. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of toasted yeast before serving. Toss hot popcorn in flakes for a moreish cheesy flavour. Or add a few spoons to mashed veggies, smashed avocado, savoury crepe fillings or scrambled eggs. Sprinkle over fresh salads or soups, rice dishes and hotpots as a scrumptious condiment. A quick and convenient taste sensation to keep in the pantry.
