    I use ground almonds as a cheese substitute and I use nutritional yeast sometimes too. BUT I NEVER THOUGHT OF MIXING THEM TOGETHER! - 8/31/11

    I'll have to give this a try! I'm deathly allergic to dairy and even "vegan" soy cheese still has dairy in it, so this might be a great option for me! - 5/4/12
