New Recipe: Whitewater Cooks Glory Bowl
We have been rocking the vegetarian meals these days ever since Papa Sas finished the book, How not to Die (more on that later!). Each one has been so delicious and luckily the kids have loved them as well. To the kids we secretly we call tofu, meat moooohahahahaha and they gobble up every last piece! Last night I made the Whitewater Cooks Glory Bowl and it was awesome. For someone new to the world of cooking, or vegetarian dishes the only foreign ingredient was nutritional yeast. I'm new to nutritional yeast myself and I wanted to see what some benefits of this new ingredient were. A quick search showed: high in B Vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc, doesn't contain candida like other traditional yeasts, good source of fibre, complete protein source and provides a cheesy flavour that some plant based diets are missing! I have also read it's tasty on popcorn! numma numma! If you are looking for a delicious new recipe to try I suggest giving this one a go and I easily halved if for my own family's needs:
