I recently picked up something called nutritional yeast from the store. Never heard of it? Don’t worry – many people haven’t! It is sold in the form of flakes or powder. It is actually a popular ingredient among vegans and vegetarians, because it mimics the flavor of cheese. Moreover, it’s a fabulous source of B-complex vitamins.

Recently, I decided to experiment a bit with this new ingredient in the kitchen and I added it to a bunch of savory recipes. Today’s recipe is one of my favorite ones for showcasing the flavor of nutritional yeast. This carb-free Wild Mushroom Linguine (no pasta here, folks) is seasoned with plenty of nutritional yeast and dressed with a delectable garlic lemon tahini sauce.

Wild Mushroom “Linguine” w/ Garlic Tahini

Start by sauteing some aromatics (onion & garlic) in olive oil over medium heat.

After the onion & garlic has become soft & translucent, add the wild mushroom slices. Add pink himalayan salt to the mushrooms and continue to cook over medium heat.

Once the mushrooms have cooked (about 5-8 minutes), push them to the circumference of the pan and add the zucchini noodles to the pan. Add some more olive oil, nutritional yeast flakes & salt. Cook another 5 minutes.

Once the noodles are fully cooked, put some in a bowl with some marinated artichokes, capers and olives. Prepare a small bowl of garlic tahini sauce using tahini (sesame seed paste), lemon juice, olive oil, and pressed garlic clove.
