Also besides a B-12 vit. suppliment and Brewers Yeast, what other *non-prossessed* foods provide a 'large' amount of B-12 for vegans. I try to avoid gluten and processed foods, so fortified cereals are not my first choice for my B-12. And the only way i can think of to use Brewers Yeast is baking my own muffins/bread (but i'm very lazy).<br><br>
Thanks for your ideas :)

Brewers yeast is a by product of the beer industry and it is nasty. What you want is NUTRITIONAL YEAST. It is grown on molassas and contains B12 and other B Vitamins. You need to look for a vegetarian support formula. Red Star and Kal are the two brands that I know of. It is also very tasty and can be used in lots of ways. Neither of these yeast can be used in bread baking for that you need Bakers yeast. There are no vegan unprocessed foods that contain B12. If you want a food source, soy milk that has B12 added is a good one But that is processed of course.

I buy a brewers yeast by Lewis Labs and it tastes very pleasant. It is a source of lots of vitamins and minerals (including all the essential amino acids) Personally I feel it is imperative in a vegetarian diet. I sprinkle some on cereal in the morning, put some in a milkshake or you can even bake with it. Nutritional yeast is also good but falls short in the vitamin content compared to brewers yeast.

I use Red Star brand nutritional yeast. I use it when I make "cheese", I use it sprinkled on popcorn and I use it added to butter (Earth Balance) then poured on broccoli.

you can make french toast with it.... (the nutritional yeast provides the egg-like flavor.)<br><br><br><br>
french toast is something i like to make for breakfast when i have houseguests. it's easy and low-fat and not *too* unhealthy, and everyone is always amazed that it tastes like 'real' french toast.<br><br><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">how to make french toast</span>:<br><br>
(i don't measure ingredients, all amounts are estimates)<br><br>
mix 2-3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast with about a cup of rice milk (or soy milk) plus about a tsp of cinnamon, a few drops of real vanilla, and about 2 tbsp of whole wheat flour. mix well, pour in a wide shallow bowl and then dip whole wheat bread in it (both sides) and cook (both sides) on an oiled griddle until done.
