Original Recipe - Shelly's Vegan Parmesan
I don't make up recipes that often but when I do, I will post them here.
This is a recipe for a vegan 'parmesan' that you can use in caesar salads, on pasta or pizza and even veggies!
You'll want to use a high powered blender. I tried this in my food processor and I couldn't get it fine enough. Also, I made it kinda salty because to me, that is what parmesan is so if you don't like salt, cut back on it and add it in while you're taste testing. But.. you probably aren't eating this by the spoonful so salty is ok in that regard. LOL
I used a crystallized lemon powder in mine for tanginess but you could probably leave it out if you wanted to.
Shelly's Vegan Parmesan
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 tsp Garlic Gold Nuggets (or sub in garlic powder or garlic flakes)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 sugar packet size True Lemon or citric acid
1/8 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Blend ingredients in blender until it is fine like parmesan cheese. Store in a jar.
