Local Vendor Focus: 
Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast (also known as "nooch") has been a star in the health foods universe for generations.  Rich in B vitamins, selenium, and zinc, this deactivated (non-rising) yeast boasts a delightfully cheesy flavor.  It's also gluten-free, dairy-free, and a complete protein.  A boon for vegetarians, nutritional yeast is often fortified with vitamin B12, typically lacking in plant foods.  

Look for the yellow flakes in the Ypsi Food Co-op bulk section.  Don't confuse it with brewers yeast, a beer-making product with a less appealing taste.  

Ideas for using nutritional yeast:

Breakfast: Sauté chopped spinach leaves in a little olive oil until wilted, top with a poached or scrambled egg, and sprinkle with nutritional yeast. 

Lunch: In a blender, whirl 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of dried Italian herb blend.  Drizzle over a Mediterranean salad of romaine lettuce, red bell pepper, black olives, and avocado.  (Add flaked tuna or salmon, if desired.)

Dinner:  Stir a tablespoon of nutritional yeast into any soup, stew, or casserole to boost flavor; fold into mashed potatoes or grain dishes, too. 

Snack: Sprinkle nutritional yeast directly onto hot popcorn.
