  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend til smooth.
  2. Add to a lidded jar and store in fridge for a few weeks.


I used the parmesan on a simple veggie pizza as the cheese for lunch. It was delish.

    This is actually almond flour parmesean instead of cashews. Used on top of a cold Italian pasta salad.

    Here’s how I crush my raw cashews if i don’t feel like cleaning my food processor or i juat want to make a single serving. It’s super fancy ūüėČ sometimes I’ll use the hammer.

    Nutritional Yeast (Amazon link)

    This is our favorite nutritional yeast because it’s not fortified with synthetic vitamins.

    Mix it all up and keep in a lidded container in the fridge for several weeks.

    There are great store bought vegan options as well.
