This nut-based parmesan cheese is made with ground cashews, almonds, pine nuts, garlic and onion powder as well as nutritional yeast. Add this delicious plant-based cheese to pasta, pizza, gratins, salads or even popcorn.
Cashews, almonds and/or pine nuts can be used to in this recipe, a mixture of all 3 nuts is also delicious.
In food processor, grind/pulse the nuts into a fine meal. Note: Do not over pulse the nuts, or they will become very greasy and turn into more of a nut butter.
Next, add the remaining ingredients and pulse once or twice to combine.
*Note: The amount of onion and garlic powder, as well as the amount of salt can be adjusted according to your tastes. This particular mix is quite heavy on all 3, but since only a small amount is typically used at any given time, we think it’s a good mix.
This mixture will last for several weeks in the refrigerator.
