  • Why do I like it?

Parmesan cheese is one of the most versatile kitchen staples and being vegan you really need a plant based substitute.  There are commercially made vegan parmesan cheeses, however they may not have the healthiest of ingredients or the best flavor.

Nut based parmesan is as versatile, delicious and easy to make alternative.  I have used all four recipes above.  You can make each and decide which tastes best to you.  The ingredients are basic staples which can be put together in minutes.  

Note that the recipes above use different nuts and seasonings so try the one with the nuts you most like!

I use it on pasta, toast, in soups or anywhere that you would usually use parmesan!
