Brewer’s Yeast Recipes

Use Brewer Yeast to Add protein, iron, B vitamins, trace minerals, and also to help women boost milk supply
Make sure to get the debittered kind!
On popcorn. After popping your popcorn, sprinkle on powdered brewer’s yeast for a great flavor. Many prefer to add some salt and granulated garlic as well. Also, try some curry powder or chili powder for other spice themes. Two tablespoons of brewer’s yeast on your popcorn adds significant nutrition to your daily diet.
In your soups. One of the major ingredients in store bought soup mixes is “hydrolyzed protein” or “hydrolyzed yeast”. They’re talking brewer’s yeast here. Add two tablespoons to your pot of soup, a touch of curry or turmeric, some parsley flakes, and optional salt. Your kids will think you bought soup mix, but you’ll know there is no MSG, no artificial coloring, and no poly hydrogenated fats to clog your veins.
In shakes/smoothies. If you’re looking for a homemade protein shake, add brewer’s yeast to your mix. Keep some frozen bananas in the freezer, and you’ll always have shake fixings. For smoothies, skip the freezing
In mashed potatoes. Make fresh mashed potatoes, and who can resist? For about 4 servings, boil 4-5 medium potatoes until soft. Mash well, adding 2 Tablespoons Brewer’s yeast, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, parsley flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
In sauces. Add to any savory sauce you make: gravy and any pasta sauce. Adds depth of flavor as well as nutrition.
Mix in sweetened vanilla yogurt, about 1 tsp to 1 cup, add some honey and oatmeal for extra flavor.
Peanut butter sandwiches: mix it to and 2tb or peanut or Almond butter for extra nutrition on your sandwich.
Peanut butter balls: Mix about 2 parts peanut butter to one part honey, add enough yeast to make a stiff dough. Roll in balls. You can also use it as a sandwich spread, use a little more honey or a little less yeast, and add honey crunch wheat germ. This is very high protein and satisfying.
*Almond butter, cashew butter, pumpkin seed butter, or tahini(sesame seed butter) can replace peanut butter
