Vegan Parmesan ‘Cheese’

Here is an easy to make 4 ingredient vegan parmesan ‘cheese’ you can use on top of zucchini noodles, pasta, pizza and anywhere you’d usually use parmesan cheese!

It only takes 5 minutes to make Vegan Parmesan.  The ingredients are cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and Celtic sea salt.

In the photo I use whole cashews but cashew pieces are also good.

Nutritional yeast has a “cheesy” flavor. It is an inactive form of yeast used as a food. I consider it a super food since it contains a full spectrum of B vitamins that provide us with energy and help maintain proper brain function.  Since our B’s get depleted when we’re under stress we need to replenish them. Nutritional yeast has chromium, good for weight loss and sixteen different amino acids, good for muscle building. CAUTION:  If you have candida this may not be a good food for you.

Put everything into the food processor.  Pulse until you get a medium fine meal, the size of grated parmesan. I like a little texture but you can make it as fine as you want.

That’s it, store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Use on zucchini noodles, pizza, vegetables, Mexican dishes or anything instead of parmesan.  It tastes so good.

Vegan Parmesan is easy to make, has a ‘cheesy flavor, a little salty and delicious.
