How to Use Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast (or nooch) is one of the only non-animal sources of vitamin B-12. It only takes 1/2-1 tbsp of nutritional yeast to get the daily requirement. Nutritional yeast is also a great source of iron, magnesium, zinc, chromium, 18 amino acids, protein and other vitamins.

Pop Corn

Sprinkle the nooch along with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt for a cheesy touch. Add other spices, such as garlic powder, thyme or paprika for an even greater party in your mouth.


Skip cheese and sprinkle a light layer of nutritional yeast onto your pizza. If you top a pizza with diverse textures and flavors, such as roasted vegetables, fragrant herbs and nutritional yeast, the cheese component is unnecessary.
