Best Cheesy Vegan Broccoli

The best easy vegan broccoli recipe. Kids and adults both will love this side dish!


the best cheesy vegan broccoli you'll ever eat - six ingredients and ready in less than 15 minutes!

Last week I was craving roasted broccoli and decided to make some for dinner using nutritional yeast.

Nutritional yeast, or as I call it, “yeast cheese” is one of my favorite flavorings to add to food.

Not only is it high in protein, but it’s vegan and has a cheesy flavor to it.

It adds such a great flavor to roasted veggies, and is great on broccoli, brussel sprouts, potatoes, and many other sides!

When my husband first took a bite of this broccoli he decided it was the best I’d ever made.

The ingredients are so simple to throw together and the yeast cheese is the star in this dish.

If you want to impress your family with a healthy and addictive broccoli dish, make this!

It’s high in protein, easy to throw together, and a healthy side that goes great with any meal!
