Good morning!! :)
So last night while analyzing my food intake, I realized I had NO IDEA what the nutritional info was for Nutritional Yeast was!
So I summoned the powers of google and found this!!
What a power house Nutritional yeast (NOOCH) is!
For 2 TBSP it’s 60 calories, less than 1 gram of fat, 3.9 grams of fibre and 8.34g of protein. On top of that, it is LOADED with vitamins!!
Red Star is the only brand I have found that I like – usually you can get it in bulk at the health food store!!
Now are you wondering what to do with it??!
Garlic Bread (thanks to Jesse @ Vegan Minded for this)
Earth balance butter, garlic and NOOCH
Taste just like the original!
Nachos!! (I am still perfecting this cheesey recipe for you!)
So far I have been using hummus, nooch, tumeric and garlic powder… mix it all together with some warm water. Not quite perfect, but still good!! (It killed my very strange McDonalds craving last night – gross I know!)
I’ve also used this mix on my pita pizzas
I also love it on popcorn and eggs…
“Slice some extra firm tofu, dip it in Braggs Liquid Aminos, then into nutritional yeast, then cook in a pan, or bake in the oven. Serve as you would chicken fingers- we dip them in plum sauce. SO GOOD :)”
This stuff is pure goodness! I’m sure there are many other things to do with it, but I am still creating!!
Do you have any yummy Nooch recipes?
Onto Easter – we had a super mellow day.
I cooked a chicken with roasted veggies (again a happy chicken from a local happy chicken brewing farm)
and I boiled up some veggies to make Newfie Mash!
I also whipped up a batch of random cookies. I totally threw stuff together and it ended in amazing chocolate chip/almond butter/walnut cookies! (Which are gluten free AND dairy free)
The recipe – which only made 6 big cookies
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup almond butter
chocolate chips and walnuts
baked at 350 for about 10 mins!
They were super quick and easy and killed my chocolate craving (since the Easter bunny doesn’t deliver dairy free chocolate!)
Do you have today off??
Dave and I are going shopping for stuff for the garden (yay!!) I can’t wait to start gardening again… I love my veggie garden!!
What are you growing this year??
Have a great day,
