Cookbooks, Ingredients & Nutritional Facts

A new cookbook arrived today and I thought I'd share.  Annie and Dan Shannon created a Vegan Home Cooking cookbook inspired by the good ole' Betty Crocker Cookbook.  I haven't dug into it yet but I'm already enchanted by the cover and title!  I'm sure my mom will get a kick out of it, since she still owns the original Betty Crocker cookbook.

I'm so excited about my new purchase.  It's so convenient to have all the substitution choices in one book instead of scouring all my cookbooks -- usually at the last minute! In addition to valuable information, it also contains tons of great recipes, plus I just love the design of the book.  As you can tell, it has become one of my all time favorites!  (by Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman)


Nutritional Yeast: Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast similar to brewer's yeast, but with more flavor. It's yellow in color and has a delicious nutty, cheesy taste.  Nutritional yeast is also a valuable nutritional supplement, as it contains high levels of protein, folic acid, and vitamins. Most important, it provides vegans and vegetarians with a non-animal source of vitamin B12.  Nutritional yeast can be used to make tofu based breakfast dishes, casseroles, mac & cheese or sprinkled on freshly popped popcorn.  Natural food stores should carry it either in the bulk section or in the baking section.
