What make these Garlic Potatoes special?

These potatoes can be made to be gluten-free and you can use whatever oil you prefer, so these can suit a variety of dietary restrictions. These potatoes also taste fantastic. One of the ingredients that really take these up a notch is nutritional yeast.

What is nutritional yeast?

Nutritional Yeast is a powerhouse when it comes to vegan cooking. It is a deactivated yeast that not only is packed with vitamins and proteins, provides almost a cheesy flavor to foods. This is why it's used in vegan cheeses and savory dishes so often. It can be a great way to add flavor without adding excess salt or fat to a dish.
