This recipe is so mouthwatering! Must try to taste even you’re not vegan. Nutritional yeast taste like cheese and it is high in B Vitamins (B-6 and B-12) which helps to extract energy from food to produce red blood cells.

Nutritional yeast is great as toppings for pasta or mix with sauce and sandwich spread.
