Vegan Parmesan cheese

    5 min

    Ground almonds and nutritional yeast are blended together to create a vegan alternative for those who cannot eat real Parmesan cheese. The taste is so similar when used in pesto or on top of pasta, it is hard to tell the difference. Try it on top of popcorn too!

    I love finding recipes that use nutritional yeast since it has so many health benefits. I have used this on popcorn, broccoli, and eggs and have enjoyed it every time. It does have a somewhat cheesy taste and adds flavor to whatever you choose to use it in.  -  01 Sep 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm always looking for good cheese alternatives since I'm used to such a weighted dairy diet and have now recently transitioned to a more plant based diet. This is perfect! Super easy to make too, which is great, since I don't have a lot of time in my schedule. It really has a good flavor and I love adding it to my pasta dishes!  -  05 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
