The first superfood is nutritional yeast. I have not heard of nutritional yeast until today.

Here are some facts about nutritional yeast extracted from wikepedia.org which Michelle shared in the kitchen:

  • nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast
  • source of protein
  • usually fortified with B vitamins
  • can be used as a cheese substitute in mashed or fried potatoes, tofu
  • tasty topping for popcorn
  • often used as nutritional support for vegetarians and vegans
  • best flavour from Red Star brand

This nutritional yeast dressing is creamy, cheesy and nutty. This dressing is great on spinach or mixed green salad. It lasts for about a week in the refrigerator.
