Well I have just made my first macaroni cheese with nutritional yeast. However, it tastes kind of weird. Have i done something wrong? Is it an acquired taste?
The light yellow powdery kind of yeast is what you would use for a cheesy taste. The light brown powdery yeast tastes VERY different; I can't describe it, but it tastes nothing like the yellow kind (unless they're making the brown stuff in yellow now??)Originally Posted by Freesia
That is kind of what I did. I dont think the type of nutritional yeast I bought is very good perhaps. It is sort of light yellow, powdery stuff, whereas the stuff I have seen in the bulk bins looks a light brown.... perhaps I should try with that instead.
Yea, there are people who really don't like nutritional yeast, so I'd say it's an acquired taste.Originally Posted by Empty_Shell
Yes, I think so. What cracks me up is on the cans I buy, it says " Wonderful nutty flavor ". Man, they're smoking some good ****.
How much pasta does that cover? Hopefully a lot for $6.49.Originally Posted by sleepydvdr
With just the right combination of ingredients, mac-n-cheese made with nutritional yeast can be decent. However, it will never compare to this product:
It's often out of stock (probably because it's so good). To me, it actually tastes better than real mac-n-cheese.
I think it goes pretty far. I can get about 6 cups of cheese sauce from a bag (and I use nearly twice the recommended amount of powder to soy milk ratio). Therefore, it comes to a little over $1 per portion. I compare it to Amy's vegan mac-n-cheese, which is nearly $5 for one portion, and this stuff is a steal by comparison.
