This is another must for vegans, alongside a daily vitamin B12 supplement, this stuff is a great way to get more into your diet. Plus it contains a whole host of other vitamins and minerals too, including: Thiamin B1, Riboflavin B2, Niacin B3, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothemic Acid B5, Iron and Zinc. Be careful not to overdo it though, you can overdose on certain vitamins, especially if you’re already taking a multivitamin. I generally aim to have around 1 – 2 tbsp per day, but it’s so yummy it’s hard not to eat more.
The flakes resemble fish food, but don’t worry they don’t taste like it. It’s great for making a vegan ‘cheese’ sauce, as it has a salty, cheesy and slightly nutty flavour. It’s also awesome in soups and sprinkled onto salads. I personally enjoy a little bit over mashed avocado on toast.
I buy mine from Holland & Barrett, they charge £3.29 for 125g. It may seem a little pricey, but when you consider how expensive cheese is, I think it’s more than worth it.
