    I LOVE it on popcorn!!!

    • Jessica (Hip' Sidekick)

      Hi, Rebecca! I’m finding that sprinkling this on popcorn seems to be the most popular way to use this! Thanks for the comment!

  2. Melissa

    Great tip! If anyone has auto immune disease and goes in the AIP diet this is huge to use. There is a book I bought called ‘he won’t know it’s paleo’ that is all AIP recipes and it uses this.

    • Jessica (Hip' Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for this info, Melissa!

  3. Daisy

    This is great! I use it on scrambled eggs, sautéed veggies, soups! Yumm!

    • Jessica (Hip' Sidekick)

      Hi Daisy! I didn’t think about using it on scrambled eggs, YUM!

  4. Matt

    I doubt most people like kale, but lightly steamed with ghee, salt, butter, and nutritional yeast is delicious. I eat it every day.

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Yum! Great idea, Matt!

  5. JJ

    I bought some recently and looking for ways to use it…any other uses you guys can share?! Thanks!!

    • Michelle

      I make a vegan Alfredo sauce with this that is absolutely delicious. It’s basically coconut milk, cashews, garlic, basil, and nutritional yeast. I put it on spaghetti squash mostly but it’s good on whatever you use Alfredo sauce in!

      • Jessica (Hip' Sidekick)

        oooh, this sounds great! Thanks for the comment, Michelle!

  6. KGD

    I use it in my son’s fave broccoli cheese soup in place of all (or some) of the cheese. Yummy!

  7. Summer

    I’m Keto and this is great as a “breading”. I make mozzarella sticks and onion rings out of this as just a couple of the things. Totally keto. This is a great product for a keto lifestyle.

    • Jessica (Hip' Sidekick)

      We love our Keto, Summer! Thanks so much for the tips!

  8. Jeanette

    I love it on baked cauliflower

    We use nutritional yeast in salad dressing from Mrs. Criddle’s Kitchen (I can’t find the exact link) . Its healthy recipe and an easy way to get some nutritional yeast in your diet. My whole family loves it. My 8 year old wanted to take her own bottle of it on vacation with my parents so she wouldn’t have to eat salad without it 🙂
    -1/2 c. olive oil
    -1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
    – 3 Tblsp nutritional yeast flakes
    – 4 cloves minced garlic (I just use minced jarred kind, which is about 2 tsp)
    -1 1/2 tsp salt
    -1/2 tsp black pepper
    Put it all in a dressing bottle and shake to mix. You’ll have to shake each time before use; store in a cool, dark location, but I don’t keep it in the fridge because the olive oil hardens

    • Mei

      Thank you so much for this. Always looking for salad dressing that is healthier and tastier than store bottled. This sounds healthy and tasty!

  10. Connie

    Thanks for recipe. I will try it with MCT oil and then I can refrigerate it.

  11. Sylvia Hernandez

    Oh…wow I’ve heard about this product before, but I never knew it had so many uses! I’m excited to buy some now that’s for all the fabulous tip everyone and way to go Hip2Save! 🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Sylvia Hernandez!

  12. Liz

    Does anybody know if this is b12 and folic acid fortified? I cannot have those synthetic .

    • Liz

      Never mind, I just read it does have it, :/

  13. Angela Knight

    I use it when making gravy to add ummami.
