For those of you who don't know, marmite is tasty brewers yeast extract. It has a strong savoury flavour that most people who try it either love or hate. I added a spoon of it to my regular curry and it was delicious! I reccomend experimenting with this tasty healthy food- you might be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

I wish I knew someone who used marmite so I could try it, I'm afraid to buy it.<br>
It took me about a year to fully appreciate the taste of nutritional yeast. I used the first tub soley on popcorn.<br>
I love miso. I now like nut. yeast a good bit. I love Braggs amino acids.<br>
I don't like molasses by itself at all. I don't like brewers yeast.<br>
Do I sound like I'd like marmite?

I've never thought of using marmite in curry, but I may just have to try it. I ADORE the stuff, and a single serving is like 60% of your daily B12 (as I discovered today), so I've been trying to incorporate it into my diet without using bread (trying to cut back on my carby foods a little)

Marmite is made with brewers yeast, it tastes somewhat similar, but not the same.<br>
It's an acquired taste certainly, it is hard to tell who will and won't like it.<br>
In the UK it's common to have it on toast or as a sandwich spread, but some people find the taste too strong on it's own, but do like it as a soup base or used in sauces or many inventive ways there are some suggestions on this site and others <a href="http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/marmite.htm" target="_blank">http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/marmite.htm</a><br>
Hope you like it!

I keep hearing about marmite, but I've never tried it (or seen it, for that matter). I should look around at my grocery store tomorrow for it!

I adore marmite--last week on holiday I bought a book of marmite recipes for £1 at a charity shop and over half are vegan or easily converted (marg instead of butter or oatly instead on dairy mllk) woohoo!<br><br>
I've n ot tried it with peanut butter but it is good with hummus.
