I guess in the Northeast ( and Milwaukee) they know the difference between
Nutritional Yeast & Brewer's Yeast.
I agree with all of you, Brewer's Yeast is nasty stuff.
When I lived in Milwaukee I was able to find a really great tasting
Nutritional Yeast, and while I can find nutritional yeast here, it's not as
great tasting as the stuff I found in Milwaukee at Outpost.
The really good stuff is a kind of greenish yellow color and smells very
reminiscent of cheese. I got it in powder form and loved it on popcorn. If I
had any leftover I would put it out for the birds and squirrels. Any
popcorn without nutritional yeast, they wouldn't eat it.
It's getting a bit chilly in the Northeast, time for my favorite dish.
Chilly Weather Chili ( not for the faint-hearted)
2-3 large green peppers 4 large onions
6 stalks celery 6 cloves garlic, minced
two 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes+ juice 1 cup chunk tvp or 2 cups small diced
1/4 cup chili powder 2 to 3 cans mixed beans (kidney, garbanzos, pinto,
etc) + juice
1 tsp oregano (2 Tb fresh) 2 tsp cumin
6 dried chipotles, de-stemmed salt to taste
8 oz. mushrooms (optional)
Chop all vegetables and throw everything together in a very large pot and
bring to a boil. Cover and lower heat. Simmer for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Stirring every now and then to make sure the tvp doesn't stick to the bottom.
This always tastes good the second day. It makes a lot!
