The ensemble for this morning's breakfast:
|Eggs, quick cooking grits and nutritional yeast.|
You may be wondering why nutritional yeast is making an appearance so often lately. Well, the reason is that I finally found some Red Star nutritional yeast which (if online reviews are to be believed) has the best flavor.
So, I have been trying it out in different recipes. And this morning it was going into the grits.
I cooked 1 serving of grits according to the package directions - I don't like my grits thick so I added in a bit more water.
When the grits finished cooking I stirred in 2 Tbsp. of nutritional yeast for a cheesy finish.
|They are a bit hard to see but there are cheesy grits under there.|
At this point I get out chopsticks (for some reason a fork just doesn't work as well) and scramble/fluff the eggs while they finish cooking from the residual heat in the pan.
The meal was rounded out with a bowl of blueberries and some tea with soy milk.
What do I think of the Red Star nutritional yeast? I can see why people prefer it - It definitely has a stronger cheddar flavor and if you are using nutritional yeast to replace cheese? The extra cheddar flavor is a big plus.
I am planning on making a homemade version of my favorite take out dish tonight - Time to go shopping for the ingredients!
