Yuck!<br><br><br><br>
:'(<br><br><br><br>
This is the first time I have used nutritional yeast, and I made a "macaroni and cheese". I got the recipe from a good vegan book, and I just did not like it at all!<br><br><br><br>
I am still new to all of this, but I am disapointed that I really do not like it at all. I will attempt a different "cheese" recipe, hopefully it will be better.

Clarity, I really dislike nutritional yeast. My first few brushes with vegan cheeze-making were complete disasters because I just couldn't accustom my taste-buds to yeasty-flavored cheezes.<br><br><br><br>
You might want to try the cheeze recipe I've posted below. It's really good, and doesn't have the strong nutritional yeast flavor associated with vegan cheezes.<br><br><br><br>
By the way, nutritional yeast makes excellent vegetarian 'chicken' broth. Bryanna Clark Grogan posted a recipe on Vegsource some time back, and it was delicious. I'll dig up the recipe if you're interested!

I'm with Kreeli. I had to get used to the flavor of nutritional yeast, and now I LOVE IT! Once I went vegan, I also had to get over the emotional attachment I had with dairy products. Eventually I managed to stop trying to find exact vegan replicas to my old favorites, and instead enjoy new kinds of foods.<br><br>
Oh, and nutritional yeast is great sprinkled on popcorn! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Brewers' yeast and nutritional yeast are usually not the same thing.<br><br><br><br>
In some plces, nutritional yeast is called "brewers' yeast", for unknown reasons.<br><br><br><br>
Usually, brewers' yeas is a medium-brown color, and tastes bitter, not at all for use like nutritional yeast.<br><br><br><br>
Nutritional yeast is yellow-ish, and goes well in/sprinkled on a lot of things. It has a nutty, somewhat cheesy taste.<br><br><br><br>
I love nutritional yeast. Most people say it's an acquired taste, but I liked it the first time I made nutritional yeast mac n cheese...and that was *REALLY* nutritional yeast heavy, 2 cups of the stuff in about 3 cups or so of sauce. I don't know. I just think the stuff is really good, over pasta dishes, in sauces, on popcorn, whatever.<br><br><br><br>

Cover and cook for about 5 minutes. Puree until smooth, adding water until you get the desired texture, about 1/2 cut. I usually use a little more soy sauce, and some Braggs Liquid Aminos.<br><br><br><br>
