Have you heard of this thing called nutritional yeast (aka “nooch”)? It’s quite the amazing food, and an essential part of any vegan kitchen.

This incredible little flake is packed with minerals like iron, zinc, selenium, and several B vitamins, including B-12 in select brands like Bragg’s. It’s also a complete protein and provides 4 grams of fiber per serving. But this magical ingredient is not only a healthy supplement to anyone’s diet, it’s also a great way to add that cheezy flavor to any dish!

Here are 8 delicious ways to nooch!
