I've seen it in a few receipes and wondered what it does, tastes like and what you mainly use it for?

You can use it to give a so-called cheese flavour to things and many use it as a vitamin b12 source. If you want vitamin b12 then make sure you get one that is fortified with vitamin b12 because it comes without as well.
Also note that it isn't a raw food.

Oh ok, thanks for that - I will have a look next time I go shopping to see what it is!
I find it to have a very chemical-like aftertaste, and it also makes me feel bloated. No, thanks!
Red bell pepper and adzuki or chickpea miso with garlic make a nice replacement for me in most recipes. And they feel good while tasting good!
BUT this is used in many "raw" recipes and may work for you. You never know!

I agree from the very few times that I have tasted it ... also I never thought it tasted like cheese! It may have improved since the many moons ago that I ate it - 20 years maybe?

I made a recipe with it recently and was sick until it was all out of my stomach. Not going to try it again.

I saw a whole bunch of recipes saying it was like a cheese replacement. So, I made these "chilli cheese fries"- jicima slices with chilli and nutritional yeast, then shake it up. I thought maybe I used too much b/c I really didn't like the flavor of it. Without the yeast, it was great. So, I have tried it since in salads, with cauliflower to make mock popcorn....I have come to the conclusion that I just don't like the flavor if it. I guess, chemically after taste is a good way to describe it. I don't know. I just think it makes the food taste bad.
