I've never had nutritional yeast, but I am an avid fan of Daiya. It is the best vegan cheese I've has and is amazing in macaroni. It doesn't melt as well as I would like, so I mix it in with the unsweetened almond mix and heat both on the stove first. Once the cheese melts, then I mix it with the macaroni noodles and put the whole thing in the oven. I'm guessing that it would also work well with the lentil burgers if you mix it in before hand.

It tastes very much like cheese. It comes in different flavors. In my town it is sold in Henry's grocery store.

For a mild cheesy taste I prefer nutritional yeast flakes over Daiya. Also gives vegetarians vitamin B12

They were very mushy! I'm actually not too bothered that they fell apart as what I ended up with tasted great! As I'm not a strict veggie I added a handful of Gruyere which was yummy. I will make them again and forget any idea of making burgers! emoticon

Vegan "glue" to hold lentil burgers together: a) 2-3 tablespoons ground flax soaked in water; b) 1-2 tablespoons psyllium husk soaked in water.

Did you cook the lentils until they were mush? I found they hold together better as burgers if you "overcook" them until they begin falling apart. Takes care, though, as you have to leave just enough water in the pan to cook them, but not so much water that they become a thick broth.

You could also try adding 1/4 cup of vital wheat gluten and 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast flakes. I don't like the Daiya vegan cheese but Soy Station isn't too bad. I used to use a lot of cheese, eggs and heavy cream before going vegan.

Fantastic suggestion KOKOEK9!!! Now I do have one question the Daiya, does it taste a lot like cheddar cheese or like another hard cheese or shredded...or is it more like american cheese?? I'm a big cheese fan...which is why Im starting as vegetarian...but the taste is everything to me I put cheese on everything lol.....not for the protein just cause its yummy....need to get away from so much though....lots of fat and cholesterol....So will you please tell me and all of our fantastic team members on a scale of 1-10 10 being you'd never know it's not moo cow cheese...what do you rank it? emoticon

And in the end you'll see.YOU WONT STOP ME!

sounds good, if you have a binding problem and want to use cheese, use Daiya, it is a vegan cheese replacement and is just like cheese

I tried these last night as they appeared on my food tracker. Easy to make & tasty - but they won't hold together! I popped the in the freezer before cooking as the mixture seemed very soft & they still fell apart. So I rescued them by smashing them in the pan & adding a little grated cheese (I know, not vegan now but I'm not following a vegan diet so it didn't matter to me). They were yummy; like a soft thin tortilla! I've still got 5 portions in the freezer so look forward to having them again. emoticon
