It seems its pretty popular stuff!
Regarded as a Vegans best kept secret, nutritional yeast is extremely versatile and pretty much a ‘must have’.
Its useful for all sorts of things. From a cheesy sprinkle on some soup or a salad to a tasty addition in a burger recipe , a great addition to popcorn for a healthy savoury snack or stirred into Baked beans! But what is it exactly?
Its actually a deactivated yeast, it is a complete protein and is rich in the B vitamins, It is naturally low in fat and also in sodium. Nutritional Information

Dorset Vegan @Dorset_vegan Feb 6 I’m a bit boring but tend to do a white sauce with a load of nooch, mustard n pepper and chuck it over pasta. (Not boring at all we think!)
Just a quick round up this time because so many tips were given in the conversations! It was really good fun chatting. xx
