Vegan MoFo: Calcium rich nutritional yeast sprinkle

I love a bit of nutritional yeast to the extent that I import great tubs of it at huge expense. I love that it has a tangy savoury taste and is cram packed full of  B vitamins but there is always room for nutritional improvement.

While flicking through Vegan Lunchbox I came across a recipe for breadsticks which involved grinding up sesame seeds with nutritional yeast and right there was the obvious answer. Sesame seeds are high in calcium and make a tasty savoury addition to the sprinkle, add in some freshly ground flax seeds and you throw some omega 3 into the mix.

You can add salt, garlic granules and/or dried onions too if you fancy more of a kick but I leave the salt out for the toddler.

nutritional yeast cheesy sprinkle

1/4 cup Sesame seeds
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast (While I import mine it can be bought through Goodness Direct but I haven’t tried this version so can’t personally vouch for it)
1 tbsp Flax seed (linseed)

Grind it all up in a coffee/spice grinder and store in an airtight container. Sprinkle where desired.
