"Nooch" is the NEW food trend! #NutritionalYeast |Krollskorner.com

Happy Wellness Wednesday my friends! “Nooch” is slang for nutritional yeast. I honestly have only known about nooch for a few months and I am low key upset I have not had it before! It is one of my new favorite ingredients. You can put it on your pasta (mac and cheese is yummy), salads, CORN, kale chips, gravy, mashed potatoes, french fries, bean dip, and even on your pizza. It is a great vegan/vegetarian option and is a nutrient powerhouse in my eyes. Low in sodium, 3g protein per serving, 20 kcal/serving and GF…it makes for a perfect cheese alternative.

For the ‘Eat this not that’ portion of the blog post…I want to compare this recipe to some of the crazy corn on the cob recipes I have seen lately. For example, bacon wrapped corn with honey glaze or slathered with tons of butter and different cheeses or sauces. Some of these recipes turn a simple corn on the cob into a high calorie delicacy. I swapped the butter with avocado and the cheese with nutritional yeast! Instead of salt I chose garlic powder and a dash of pepper. Such an easy and simple recipe – I hope you all enjoy this recipe! 🙂
