Nutritional yeast (not to be confused with other yeasts, such as brewer’s or torula) is grown specifically for its nutritive value. Available as flakes or powder, nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor to all sorts of foods.
Vegan Nutritional Yeast (Nooch) Cheezy Biscuits
Prep Time: 20 mins Total Time: 35 mins Serves: 12, Yield: 12 biscuits
"These came from my Red Star Vegetarian Support Formula cookbook that uses their brand of nutritional yeast. There are other brands that can be used.
1 cup plain unsweetened soymilk ( or other non-dairy milk, just under 1 cup see directions)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup canola oil
Pour the soymilk, almond milk, etc. into a glass measuring cup and stir in the lemon juice. Let it rest at room temp for 10 minutes to sour.
Place the flour, nutritional yeast, baking powder, chili and garlic powders, and salt into a medium mixing bowl and stir them together.
Pour the oil into the dry ingredient mix, and cut in with a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture is crumbly.
Using a fork, stir in just enough of the soured non-dairy milk so the dough can come together and can form into a large ball-- too much milk will make the dough sticky but not enough will make the biscuits dry.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface and knead it gently until it is smooth (about 25-30 times.) Gently form it into a ball.
Reflour the work surface and roll the dough out into a 1/2 inch thick sheet.
The Best Vegan Macaroni and Cheese Ever
Prep Time: 8 mins Total Time: 8 mins Servings: 6
1 1/2 cups plain soymilk
1 cup water
1/3 cup tamari or 1/3 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 cups nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt
3 ounces firm tofu
1 cup canola oil
1 1/2 lbs macaroni noodles
2 teaspoons mustard (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Boil water in a big pot for the pasta.
All of the ingredients sans pasta can easily go in a blender (liquid and powdered) -- this is by far the easiest way.
Once pasta is cooked, drain and put it in the baking pan pour the cheese sauce over the pasta.
Bake until the top of the pasta looks slightly browned and crispy, about 15 minutes.
