Susan of the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen recently wrote a great post introducing readers to the joys of nutritional yeast . This ingredient is wonderful for any vegan looking to boost their B vitamins or just add some tasty umami flavor to their recipes. It can add a cheesiness to recipes that is very satisfying. Ironically, I read her post as I chowed down on a big plate of gluten-free pasta, topped with homemade tomato pasta sauce, pine nuts, and a generous dash of flaked nutritional yeast. My first encounter with nutritional yeast as a college student was on popcorn, and it left me wanting more. Luckily there are a lot of ways to use nutritional yeast. Recently I made a great tofu scramble/saute for breakfast along with some home fries. I devoured the tofu scramble and Toddler Yum couldn’t get enough of the home fries, so it was a success all around.
I have lots of recipes using nutritional yeast:
Un-chicken Roasted Vegetable Soup with nutritional yeast 
Nutritional yeast gravy 
Yum nutritional yeast sauce 
Nutritional Yeast Coated Baked Tofu Strips 
Pan Fried Southern Fried Nutritional Yeast Tofu 
Mashed Cauliflower with Nutritional Yeast Cheesiness 
Dairy-Free Cheesy Nutritional Yeast Spinach Pie 
Have you tried nutritional yeast? What is your favorite recipe using nutritional yeast?
My friend Alisa of Go Dairy Free has also Written about Nutritional Yeast 
My favorite cookbooks with Nutritional Yeast Recipes (not strictly gluten-free but largely adaptable):
Vegan Tofu Saute Breakfast Recipe
1 tbsp. Grapeseed Oil
1/2 firm tofu block sliced horizontally in half and pressed between towel for 30 minutes or overnight kept in the fridge
1/4 large onion, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and grated
handful of chard or kale, washed, de-veined and sliced into thin strips
favorite herbal seasoning blend, especially a dill or shallot based one like Penzey’s Sunny Paris
dash of gluten-free soy sauce
nutritional yeast to taste, from 2-4 tbsp.
Dice your pressed tofu into small cubes.
Preheat a nice pan and add your grapeseed oil. Sautee your onions until they lose their crunch and then move them to the side. Add a little more olive oil if necessary and heat before adding your tofu cubes. Pan fry until golden brown on one side and then turn. Season tofu with your herbal seasoning blend and herbamare if desired. When both sides of tofu are golden brown, Add your grated carrot and chard or kale. Cook until softened, taste, and drizzle a little gluten-free soy sauce on your tofu if desired. Add generous amount of nutritional yeast on top, heat and then flip over tofu mixture so nutritional yeast is evenly distribute. Taste. Adjust seasonings as needed. Add pepper. Those who have grown-up taste buds can dab with srirachi hot sauce as they like. Avocado cubes would also be tasty on top.
