I can be stubborn about some things. And I've decided not to give up on nutritional yeast and Mae's humnut sauce. Today I whipped up some more humnut cheese at lunchtime for some nooch nachos. I used a little less nutritional yeast this time, and spread it over Guiltless Gourmet chips and my favorite salsa flavor, mango peach (yum!). I have to say that this round of humnuttery pleased me more than my first attempt and ended up tasting quite good, but I can't decide if that's due to the unquenchable goodness of the salsa.
Like I already said, however, I can be stubborn. And nutritional yeast, I'm throwing down the noochy gauntlet -- you will not defeat me! I wonder if my hummus base for the sauce is adversely affecting the final flavor. I used a lot of paprika, which is not in my standard hummus recipe. Perhaps I'll try a more neutral tasting hummus for my next nooching. I will prevail!
