That was always the first thing that came to mind when I saw other bloggers using this condiment so-unappetizingly-called nutritional yeast.
After seeing it in the store a few weeks ago, I decided to finally give it a try. I mean, considering my health tank hasn’t exactly been at an all-time high, I sort of need all the help I can get.
Nutritional yeast is “a valuable source of high-quality protein, essential amino acids, vitamins, dietary fiber, and minerals.”
Or as I like to call it…
I was quite skeptical, but I really am loving it! 8 grams of protein per 1 1/2 tablespoons and a salty, cheesy flavor? Sold.
For the most part I’ve been eating it atop salads and veggies, but I can attest that it also makes for a rockin’ addition to New England Clam Chowder.
Have you ever tried nutritional yeast? Thoughts?
