A simple plant-based parmesan cheese made with raw cashews or almonds, nutritional yeast, a little Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt. It’s great on top of pastas, pizza, veggies and anything else you can think of.




  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix, pulse, mix, pulse until it’s fairly fine and looks like parmesan. If you do want it “chunkier”, blend a little less.


*If cashews aren’t your thing, try raw almonds, brazil nuts or even walnuts. Feel the freedom to experiment.

*Feel free to adjust the flavors as you go. If you want a more “cheesy” flavor, add a little more nutritional yeast, etc. It’s your world, do what you want!

*You can store this in the fridge in an airtight container for a few weeks.
