    you would want to get red star fortified nutritonal yeast. it seems as though the b-12 found in things like tempeh and such can't be utilized by the body (no one really knows for sure) but to be safe you may want to drink soymilk and eat cereals and things that are fortified with b-12. there is a lot about it in many of the threads here (along with recipes using nutritonal yeast - usually used to give a bit of a "cheesy" flavor to things)

    Hi kritica, and welcome!

    You can put nutritional yeast on lots of things...salads, pasta, pita wraps, get creative!

    Many vegan foods are also fortified with B12 (cereals, soy milk, almond milk, breads, etc)

    Be aware that there is a lot of research and controversy about B12 (both on this forum and "in the real world"), and one particular thing you might like to find more information about is actual B12 versus B12 analogues that interfere with the absorption and processing of actual B12.

    Hope this helps! Congratulations on becoming a vegan and good luck
