VeganMoFo # 13 - The Nutritional Yeast Cookbook


Joanne Stepaniak was one of the very first authors writing vegan cookbooks. The Nutritional Yeast Cookbook Featuring Recipes Using Red Star Vegetarian Support Formula Flakes is one of her earlier books (1997). If you have never tried nutritional yeast (not to be confused with brewer's yeast) it has a wonderful cheesy flavor and is a good source of B vitamins. Look for it in health food stores in the bulk food section or you can buy it online.

I made the Caesar Salad. The base of romaine lettuce with strips of toasted nori and croutons is topped with a delicious dressing. The dressing is oil free and consists of nutritional yeast, tahini, Dijon mustard, garlic, lemon juice and soy sauce. I really liked it and will make it again. Next time I might add some capers to the dressing as well. I recommend this book for new vegans and for those who enjoy comfort foods.

Recipes I've tried and liked from this book include Chickpeas A La King, Grilled Cheez Sandwiches, Sadie's Vitality Broth, and the Crock Cheez (my favorite recipe from the book).

Here are some bonus photos from the Santa Fe Farmer's Market voted one of the top ten farmer's markets in the country by USA Today.
