Making your own vegan parmesan cheese is so fabulous you’ll likely want to have a permanent batch of this in your refrigerator, so you can sprinkle it on absolutely everything.
And I mean everything.
We sprinkle it on rice dishes, potato dishes, on salads, on the no-cheese thin crust pizza take-outs we buy, on pasta dishes (of course), veggie burgers, and whatever else we can think of!
If it’s a savory dish then chances are it’ll be even more delicious with a sprinkle of this on top.
Of course it’s vegan so it’s entirely dairy-free.
It’s made from cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic spice and sea salt.
As simple as that!
You need a food processor to make this, and you simply put in the S blade, and pulse it until it’s super fine like you see in the photos.
Pulse, don’t blend.
You don’t just want to run the food processor on this one because, ya know, cashews when processed for too long can start to turn into cashew butter, which you definitely don’t want here.
So pulse it. Don’t set it and forget it.
So I think you’ll love this vegan parmesan cheese, it is:
- Perfect to sprinkle on all savory dishes!
- Quick and easy!
Keep it stored in the fridge in a sealed container and it will stay fresh and good for weeks!
