This weekend I decided to embrace my non-dairy lifestyle (thanks elimination diet that still did not cure my migraines) and cook it up with nutritional yeast. It tastes fantastic on popcorn, but what else could I make?
Empowered by Buzzfeed’s article on the yellow powder and my hunger for carbs, I got to cooking broccoli crackers. Yes, in retrospect, this sounds terrible but I was loopy from a migraine and thought, “what the heck.” I gathered my ingredients, pulverized them to infinity and beyond, then spread out for baking.
Thirty five minutes later I had a semi-burnt, semi-soft batch of broccoli “crackers”. They were…on par with their odor. Not good. So I tried to whip up a batch of hummus to make up for their lack of failure. But I didn’t have my normal stock of garlic or lemon. A fatal error.
My basil and yeasty mess just got more and more revolting as I kept adding other ingredients to fix it. So I dashed in some paprika (a cure all if there ever was one) and called it a day. Still not good, but better.
I sat on the couch to eat my lunch-snack of broccoli chips and hummus, but then decided a nap followed by Whole Foods wine tasting was better than this poor excuse for a meal.
So…in conclusion, don’t really bother making this recipe. It’s not good. Try sprinkling it on popcorn or baking with cauliflower instead.
