23 Delicious Reasons To Start Cooking With Nutritional Yeast

Let's give it up for the nooch.

Nutritional yeast is inactive yeast, often used for its savory, cheesy flavor. It's vegan and gluten-free and available in most health food stores. It's also got tons of nutrients, including B-vitamins, zinc and protein.*

Sometimes it's powdery, sometimes it's flaky, but it is always GLORIOUS.

*Check the label on the brand you're buying for specifics on nutritional info — not all nutritional yeasts are the same.
