Cheesy ChickenPin

What baby doesn’t like cheese? It’s easy to pick up, soft, and has tons of flavor. One of my friends is vegan and introduced me to Nutritional Yeast a few years ago. The name sounds kind of disgusting if you ask me, but it’s a pretty cool ingredient. It comes in a powder form which is flakey.
My friend was cooking for her toddler and made vegan macaroni and cheese. I was totally skeptical at first, but then realized it was delicious! You can sprinkle it into casseroles, soup, sauces to add tons of nutrients and cheese flavor. In this dish, I’ve added it along with Colby Cheese, so that Kenya will get the protein and fat from a little cheese plus the vitamins and nutrients from the nutritional yeast.

    1. My baby LOVED this. I tasted it myself and it is delicious! I added tomatoes and steamed them with the rest of the veggies. I did not add the nutritional yeast since I didn’t have it but added parmesan. So yummy. You need to have a recipe for this in adult form!

    2. ive got a potato hater in the house. any suggestions of a replacment? maybe just more veggies?
