This vegan Parmesan cheese is made out of cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and salt. It's cheesy, nutty, savory, and so easy to make.
Servings: 16 Tbsp.
Calories: 59 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw cashews*
  • 4 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • fine sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until a coarse meal forms.

  2. Store leftover vegan "Parmesan" in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

Recipe Notes

*Do not soak the cashews. If you soak them, the cashews will absorb water and become creamy when blended. You want the cashews to keep their nutty texture which makes for a more convincing Parmesan cheese.
