If it’s purposely misspelled with a Z it has I be good yah? Like anything cheezy, or Eazy?
Vegan recipes for cheezy things have been abounding.

Why is that cheez made with such eaze?

Cause it’s nutritional yeast. You don’t have to even grate that shiz-nit.
I have to confess I’ve been enjoying stuff made with the ‘nooch. You know you’re in the club when you call it nooch, baby. So I leapt with great excitement into the recipe by Averie Sunshine of the Love Veggies and Yoga blog.

Holy chili bat-people! This tastes like a fantastic vegan chili. I love the spice. I wish I had saltines to crumble into it…

Turnips were one major change I made to this recipe. If you think you don’t like turnips give them a whirl in a recipe with potatoes. The taste is seriously similar.

I did not really register the nutritional yeast taste-I think I’d up the quantity in the future. Though I added more agua than the original recipe called for so perhaps it got diluted.

Anywho. Get your nooch and get eeeeezy. Nooch and easy. Sounds dirty.

EZ Cheezy(adapted from Love Veggies and Yoga)
4 oz. potatoes, diced
1 turnip, diced
Handful of spinach
3/4 c. Black beans(already cooked, at home or open a can)
2 T. + 2 tsp. nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Freshly ground pepper
Sea salt
Dash Bufalo Chipotle Sauce
1/2 c. Salsa
1 c. H2O
Layer ingredients in 2 qt. baking dish in order listed. Bake at 425 for about 45 minutes. Stir n chow. Ezzzzzz!

    Ooo, I might have most of these ingredients on hand! I make my beans from dried – I presume they need to be cooked first before baking?

      Oh, yes! I’ll go edit that recipe just in case. And yah, totally gruel-in’ dude:)

      I’m with you on home-cooked beans when possible. I actually will cook a big bag then freeze portions for later.

        We’re trying it tonight with a few substitutions! Ok several…

        I didn’t have black beans made but had these brown and white pinto like beans so used those – added some cheddar cheese (so not vegan anymore!) – didn’t have salsa but had leftover tomato paste from my homemade seitan – didn’t have a turnip and used purple potatoes – upped the cayenne – and subbed mustard greens for spinach! Will let you know how it goes!

    Interesting! I’ve seen chili recipes with sweet potatoes, pumpkin but never turnip and spinach.That’s a cool twist to it 😉
