My Favorite Non-dairy “Cheesy” Sprinkle

My friend Shelly at Plantiful Wellness created this non-dairy “cheesy” sprinkle.  You can whip it up in a jiffy then add it to all kinds of savory dishes.  Easy Peasy.  Tastes great!  And it gets better!!  This stuff is actually nutritious!!  Nutritional yeast is a source of B vitamins, protein, amino acids and fiber.  If you want to read more, here’s a link to an article on Mind, Body Green, “5 Reasons Why I’m Obsessed with Nutritional Yeast“.  You can find nutritional yeast in health food stores in the bulk section or in a jar.  Amazon also offers it – Red Star, which is a great brand.

The other key ingredient is walnuts, another nutritional powerhouse.  I especially love them for the ever sought after Omega-3 fatty acids.  Here’s a link with loads of information on the benefits of Walnuts from World’s Healthiest Foods, a great resource for nutritional information on food.
Here’s the recipe:
