Nutritional yeast has a naturally cheesy flavour which you'll notice right away. One big benefit of nutritional yeast is that it is often high in B12, an important vitamin that much of the population is deficient in, especially plant-based eaters. Aside from B12, nutritional yeast is also a "complete protein," it contains other B vitamins, is low in fat and sodium, is free of sugar and gluten, and contains iron. [reference]
You can use veggies, or crackers for this 7 layer dip. I love using homemade dehydrated vegetable crackers that I make with leftover pulp from juicing. You can add flaxseed to your pulp, each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s. Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects.
