No I don't. I'm out in timbuktu (really). Please enlighten me


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

zola-Timbuktu is in Africa. Your profile says you are in Washington, USA.

Nutritional Yeast/Brewer's Yeast is not the same yeast that goes into bread to make it rise. It is good for A's, especially nonnies. Yeeeaaaayyyyy. I use it on salads, rice cakes (especially Car54's spread and for dipping veggies-yummalicious), steamed veggies or whatever the mood hits me. Just made a new batch this morning with my new batch of ghee.

Judging by the way the two terms are used on product labels, there is no particular difference nowadays between "nutritional yeast" and "brewer's yeast." The distinction used to be that brewer's yeast was literally just that -- the dregs of beer brewing. It became popular with the hair-shirt and self-flagellation school of health food fanatics because of its high vitamin/protein content and dreadful taste.

Then someone got the bright idea, hey, instead of using Budweiser's leftovers, why don't we grow a fresh batch of yeast, feed it molasses instead of beer, and see if it tastes any better. It did.

I'm not sure that anyone sells actual brewer's yeast anymore. My favorite type of nutritional yeast, KAL flakes, used to say Brewer's Yeast on the label (I see they've changed it now), but has always tasted yummy. Some other brands say Nutritional Yeast on the label, but taste dreadful. Don't expect any brand to taste good straight out of the package, though! Try it in a good, simple recipe (like Car's Spread), and if it doesn't taste good to you, try another brand.

Speaking of recipes tasting good, I just made a small test batch of EquiPro's ghee/olive oil version of The Spread. Here are the amounts I used: 2 Tbsp ghee, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 4 Tbsp yeast flakes (equivalent to 2 Tbsp yeast powder), and 1/4 tsp salt. This made just over 6 Tbsp of Spread, which I am now devouring on Lundberg rice cakes. Who needs popcorn, indeed!

I can see that I'll have to bake some spelt bread in the morning, so I can see what this is like on toast.

This stuff has a somewhat higher fat content than peanut butter, about 20 grams per 2 Tbsp (compared to about 15 for PB), but the flavor is so much richer that you'd probably eat less. It has exactly the same protein content as PB, 8 grams per 2 Tbsp.  The same 2 Tbsp has only about 200 mg of sodium, though it tastes good and salty.

Oh, and Zola, KAL Nutritional Yeast Flakes have a mere 5 mg of sodium in 4 Tbsp.

Quoted from lola
Heidi's Vegemite


Two tablespoons KAL nutritional yeast;

One teaspoon + organic wheat-free tamari (San-J makes a readily available one)
One teaspoon + toasted sesame oil. Stir with fork, and spread! While it is
more golden-brown than peaty, it offers a lovely B-punch and is as salty as
any vegemite-lover could desire!
..............................



So how does one enjoy vegemite? Or more precisely, this compliant version? More ideas requested than a mere bread spread, please.

Lynn-as Edna's NY Spread is great for dipping any veggie, I can only imagine (being a nonnie-no tamari) it would be the same.

I finally had a batch of The Spread in the fridge and a loaf of (spelt) bread in the box at the same time. It's even better on (crisp) toast than on (toasted) rice cakes!

As I was munching, something stirred way in the back of my mind, and I realized that the combination of ingredients was familiar (as a written recipe, rather than as anything I'd ever tasted before). Sure enough, EquiPro's oil-and-ghee version is very close to being a combination of two recipes from Laurel's Kitchen, published thirty years ago.

The first, "Better Butter" offered as a healthier alternative to margarine, combined equal parts of safflower or corn oil and butter (with the optional addition of powdered milk, lecithin, and salt). The second recipe, "Yeast Butter," stirred a mere 2 tablespoons of yeast into half a cup of melted margarine [sic!], with the suggestion that it be drizzled over vegetables or spread on toast.

I never tried either recipe back then because they sounded so grim! As the editors of the second edition say in their commentary on Yeast Butter, "the 'health food' of the sixties [has] become the wild indulgence of the eighties."

Yes, of course.  I wonder why the authors didn't think of substituting their Better Butter for margarine in their Yeast Butter recipe.  They could have invented The Spread thirty years ago!

"Better Butter" was the first recipe I mentioned a couple of posts back, from Laurel's Kitchen -- it's simply equal parts of butter and oil mixed together, to be used in place of butter or margarine. So what I mean is, if the authors of LK had thought of using "Better Butter" instead of (yecch) margarine in their "Yeast Butter" recipe thirty years ago, they would have invented The Spread and saved us all a lot of time!

Does anyone else here remember early-70's health food?

I guess I'm bumping this up here?  ... but this thread is soooooo-oo informative!  first of all, MARGARINE IS AN AVOID(?)!!  it's not listed on the TYPEbase4, so I didn't know!!  Second, found out about the existence of "nutritional yeast."  I personally like the Brewer's Yeast I buy online quite a lot, so since I don't have any Nutritional Yeast handy, I guess I'll try making "The Spread" with Brewer's.  I've been missing peanut butter pretty bad!  Then it was mentioned to eat it on 100% rye ... oh my goodness!  I've been suffering along eating only rice crackers ... I CAN EAT RYE KRISP ... HALLELUJAH!!  and sweet potatoes... and this stuff sounds GOOOOOOD!


Peace, be Still.

Margarine is partially hydrogenated something.  Usually soybean oil.  You don't want to eat partially hydrogenated anything.

Yes I do, My mom fed us loads of interesting things all in the name of health.



Dr. D had this little spiral bound book he would give to his patients way back when, that had a similar recipe in it for butter, that was before Ghee. Wish I still had that little book

Car 54 here!  My name is different but the spread is still the same and I have an update:

This is awesome on brown basmati rice!!!!!!  The rice could start out plain but, as it happens, I cook mine with adobo seasoning, a little olive oil, and a cut up raw onion in the cooking water.  VUNDERBAR.  Like I said, though, this would be just as good with plain brown basmati rice to start with.  Then you add a variant of my famous Car 54's Spread:

- Dark-toasted sesame oil (marries awesomely with basmati rice's inherent nuttiness)
- Organic lemon juice concentrate (or fresh lemon juice--the concentrate is, well, more concentrated  , and thus I favor it for this)
- Nutritional yeast flakes (I love KAL brand!)
- Sea salt

People:  prepare for yumminess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If you need a comfort carb fix that packs a hit of protein (the nutritional yeast), some vitamin C (lemon juice) and fiber (basmati rice), this is the ticket.

Oh yeah, babe.  I think my nutritional yeast spread is my best and only contribution to society to date.

You are kidding right.   You've given us more than that girl.  

And...when are you getting online at home?  May have missed an explanation somewhere.

  You really think so?  Well, the spread is up there with my best contributions, at least when it comes to concrete, real things that one can TASTE.

Oh, Lord, I know, this is a pitiful example of how procrastinatey (new word) I can be.  Don't even go there, but I will be on line, seriously, I want to say by October sometime.  But then again, if you don't believe me, I don't blame you.

Dude, why haven't I marketed tons of my ideas, which have gone on to fame and glory and BIG BUCKS without me, such as:

- flavored coffee creamers (specifically amaretto and creme de menthe, but the general concept, too, which was non-existent when I thought of this)

- dietetic ice cream (didn't exist--what, I'm old!) called "skinny dip"

- paint with the primer mixed in

My nutri. yeast spread is just another thing that will one day show up on shelves with the Kraft name and earn big bucks for some undeserving schmoe whilst I sit around wondering how long 'til the termites fell my abode.
