meatless: not to derail the thread or anything, but... it looks like you added tofu to the recipe -- is that what I'm seeing? Also, the recipe calls for white rice -- I have brown rice or basmati rice... how do you think it would taste with basmati? I could always just adapt the recipe for brown, but I have this *huge* bag of basmati I need to use up, lol.

yum yum yum. I can't wait to try this -- and see if it really is "cheesy."

Yes actually I did add tofu. It's a baked tofu by a local tofu company that I don't think anyone outside of my region would have access to (I'm sure you could sub other baked tofu if you'd like the extra protein.)

I use white jasmine rice for the recipe. I don't really know how brown basmati would work. I'm sure it would be fine, but it would definitely be different.

I also cut the recipe in half. Cut in half it makes about 3 meal-sized servings.

Oh one thing that's pretty important- if your NY is more powdery than flakey, be sure to reduce the amount used in the recipe. It'll tend to be more powdery towards the bottom of the bag. So, for example, if you're NY is very powdery, instead of one cup of NY use more like 1/2- 2/3. Because 1 cup of powdery NY is more like 1.5 + cups of flakey NY.

Is it actually yeast? I get thrush if I have too much yeast and I noticed some recipes on here ask for a cup of this! Surely it can't be like normal yeast where you add a teaspoon to a loaf of bread?

No, ren. It's not the same stuff. Not at all.

Nutritional yeast has a cheese-like flavour (as others have mentioned). Baking yeast is dead nasty if you try to eat it.
