I love Sadia's recipes. I made these fries as a way to use up some extra zucchini from the farmers market. For my personal taste I cut the fries a little smaller and baked on higher heat. Came out great!

This recipe looks awesome!
But is there a substitute for the nutritional yeast? Or will the quality remain the same if I omit it?

PUL Team - June 30, 2021, 3:41 a.m.

Hi Aida! Nutritional yeast is a bit tricky to find a sub for as it adds a cheese-like flavour. You could add pulverized cashews to help mimic the creamy mouthfeel or exclude it if desired for less "cheesy" fries 😊
