Yeast is a fungus. We eat other fungi like mushrooms. I love the taste of bread yeast (although it's a bit expensive to make a full meal out of compared with other ingredients).
I know that live yeast produces CO2 and alcohol, which makes it unsuitable for consumption. But what about cooked yeast? Is it possible to make yeast soup? Yeast stir fry? Yeast stuffing?
Has this been successfully done before (where and how)?
Also, is the yeast which is used for making bread pure yeast? Or is it some type of dissolvable material used to carry the organisms?
