Meatless Monday: Vegan Popcorn

Nutritional Yeast is a source of protein and vitamins (including B-complex vitamins) and is a complete protein. It has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, which makes it useful to vegans as a cheese substitute. I've tried it in several recipes, but the best use we've found is as a topping for popcorn -- even the kids love it!

To make, air pop 1/2 cup corn kernels, then toss with 2 Tbs grapeseed oil and 3 Tbs nutritional yeast. Salt to taste.
