Vegan Parmesean Cheese


Vegan Parmesean

Two ways.

Homemade version using cashews and store bought options.

Homemade (original recipe here: vegan parmesean )


  • 3/4 cup (90 g) raw cashews
  • 3 Tbsp (9 g) 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 parmesean 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 šŸ˜‰ 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.
