I sprinkle it on top of things like we used to use parmesan. We also like it on popcorn.
And yes, you can make sauces with it, or put it into soups, etc. It will go best in savory dishes, obviously--it does have a distinct flavor.
I always put some in our tofu scrambles, at the end with a squeeze of lemon juice.
There are good recipes online and in most of the vegan cookbooks for "cheezy sauces" made with nutritional yeast. These are great on steamed veggies, potatoes and grains.
People who drink beer generally love it. It's a similar flavor to brewer's yeast.
I wish it had a more delicious sounding name though!
