Nutritional yeast is a wonder food. Exploding with nutty/cheesy flavor and including Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12, it's is a vegan source of precious B vitamins. If you're struggling to incorporate veggies in your diet, this dressing will make your raw veggies worthy of shoving in your mouth; it's that good. You'll rape your vegetables, I swear it!
My art partner-in-crime Birdie of Frog vs Toad and The Haiku Life is my dressing's biggest fan. He drew you a comic to help you make this delicious dressing! Let's see!
It really is that easy! Step 1) Blend 2 cups of nutritional yeast *, 1/3 cup water, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil, 1/3 cup of soy sauce/tamari/or liquid aminos (tamari is the best choice), 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar, and a few drops of sesame oil (yum!) Step 2) pour it into a pretty bottle and refrigerate.
* I buy my nutritional yeast in the bulk buy section of Whole Foods. You can Google it and comparison shop online if there are no Whole Foods or health food stores near you. The flakes are delicious on top of popcorn and pasta, too!
I'd say it will last in your fridge for about 1 month but...it won't. Once you have that cheesy, earthy, savory, umami flavor in your yap you won't stop eating every vegetable in sight until you've drained your bottle of dressing dry. And your sorry soul won't feel complete again until you whip another delicious batch. My favorite way to devour it is as a dip with fresh, raw cauliflower and broccoli.
I make a spread with fresh veggies and nutritional yeast dressing at every party I host and every ounce of vegetable and dressing is licked clean before the end of the night! Try it, you'll see what I mean!
