The Goodness Of Yeast

Yeast should be a must-have in your kitchen as it is rich in nutrients. Here are two great recieps that will help you enjoy the wonders of this ingredient.

You’ve heard about using yeast to make bread, pizza dough or pastries but have you ever thought about including it in the dishes you cook daily?

However, before you pour the whole packet of active dry yeast (used for baking) into your pan, you should know that there is a difference between active yeast, brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast. Active yeast is used for baking and should not be ingested by itself as it can cause gastrointestinal issues. Nutritional and brewer’s yeast on the other hand, can be consumed by itself. Here, are two vegetarian-friendly recipes for you to try.
