I have a bottle of nutritional yeast that I would like to use during my pregnancy. However, I'm kinda at a loss on how to incorporate it into my food. Does anyone have any good ideas on what I can add it to?

I put it in casseroles, and sprinkle it on top of potatoes.

I always add some to my baking, not much, usually just a few tablespoons. I really don't like the taste of nutritional yeast, but it's so good for you.

I love it on homemade popcorn! (I know it was previously mentioned) I like to melt organic butter on the popcorn, salt it with sea salt, and then douse it heavily with Nutritional yeast. MMMM! My son loves it as well!<br><br>
Think I'll go make some right now!

We sprinkle a little bit of Braggs liquid aminos & then dust it w/the yeast...the Braggs helps the yeast stick to the popcorn & it's a healthier option than butter/salt. I lived on this during my pregnancy & dd would live on it if I let her!<br><br>
"May all be Fed" has some awesome recipes for sauces, dips & spreads that incorporate Nut. Yeast too.

If you eat tofu, nutritional yeast MAKES a tofu scramble. You can look up a recipe, but I kind of eyeball it. For 2 servings:<br><br>
1/2 package tofu<br>
good sprinkle garlic powder (about 1/4 t)<br>
sprinkle onion powder (less than 1/4 t)<br>
about 1/2 t turmeric<br>
2 T nutritional yeast<br>
salt and pepper to taste<br><br>
Mix all together and heat in an oiled skillet over med heat until lightly browned.

I used to make a great vegan mac and cheese with it. I use it in most meals that I want a cheesy taste. It's really good in risotto too.

I put the granular kind on buttered popcorn, buttered pasta, braised greens, and anything else that strikes my fancy.<br><br>
If you have the flaky kind, you can do all that *and* make "cheeze" sauces.

Oh my gosh, and I thought I was only one of the few people who put this on their popcorn! My daughter loves it too, though I know quite a few people who think I am a bit crazy (just had some today, as a matter of fact!)

Another vote for popcorn! I like to sprinkle with soy sauce, then yeast and cayenne pepper! YUM!<br>
Its also really good as a coating on slices of tofu, dampen slices of firm tofu with some sort of liquid/marinade then coat with the yeast and fry. Very delish!

i think that, with the addition of salt and an oil (we use flax on the popcorn) it tastes a lot like cheese, so you can improvise. anything w/ cheese or would taste good w/ a cheesy flavor is a candidate! you can stir it into steamed vegs for instance.

There's a really good veggie burger recipe in vegan vittles that uses yeast flakes and tvp. It's so good. I've made it for meat eaters and they loved them. So do my kids. Let me know if you'd like the recipe,

Sprinkle in Mac N Cheese, soup, chili, popcorn, garlic bread...anything that has a cheesy taste. You can use it on top of spaghetti like parmesean cheese...you can do a lot with it! Ther are several recipes on the net that include nutirtional yeast, just google it.

we add it to veggies, salads, grains, soups.....<br><br>
on pizza <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I've found that it needs more salt than I would normally add--but not so much that things are a salt bomb <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
