Nutritional Yeast Dressing

Sounds gross, right?

But stick with me here.  It’s one of the few things that sounds remotely good this pregnancy and I have to share.  I used to make this all the time a few years ago, and kind of fell out of “practice” with it.  But I revisited it a few weeks ago and have been putting it on salads (or a salad…vegetables are hit or miss), ground turkey, carrots, and anything else lately.

So, what is nutritional yeast?  It’s deactivated yeast (so it isn’t going to make your bread rise) and a complete protein, providing all nine amino acids the human body cannot produce on its own.  It is also rich in vitamin B-12 and contains no animal products

And what does it taste like?  Cheesy basically!  Some ways it can be used…
– Sprinkle it on popcorn.
– Stir it into mashed potatoes.
– Add a little to the cooking water for “cheesy grits” or polenta.
– Sprinkle on any pasta dish.
– And make this dressing!
