  • Hello Merlyn! This is a great recipe. You could also skip the bread and serve it on a bed of fresh spinach! I am glad you liked the potato salad. Yum!

  • Hi Karla
    What is Nutritional Yeast and why is it used here?
    Love all your food at H3! :-)

  • Hello Debbie! I am glad you love all of our food! Nutritional yeast is yellow in color and has a cheesy/nutty flavor. It is often popular in a vegetarian diet because it is a complete protein and has 15 minerals. Nutritional yeast is available in most health food stores. A few fun ways to include it into your diet include; sprinkling some on top of a low calorie popcorn, sprinkling a little on roasted kale, or sprinkle a little on your scrambled eggs in the morning. Enjoy!
