This vegetarian alternative to Parmesan cheese tastes pretty much like real cheese. It’s hard to tell the difference.
Another plus from making this plant-based parmesan recipe yourself is usually cheaper than buying it at the store. I make this version with walnuts, nutritional yeast, salt, and garlic powder, making it preservative and additive-free.
You can make this cheese with any nuts. Try to use raw unsalted one, but if you can’t, ensure you fine-tune the amount of salt suggested in the recipe.
You need nuts (we are using walnuts in this recipe), Nutritional Yeast, Garlic Powder and Salt.
Although this non-dairy Parmesan cheese doesn’t melt, it goes very well with any dish that calls out for parmesan dish. It goes well over savory dishes like pasta, pizza, and baked goods. I have also tried it over salads.
This recipe is tasty and so good. To make it, you only need a couple of ingredients usually available at any plant-based kitchen and blender. The result will be a versatile and delicious plant-based cheese that will boost the flavor of your dishes.
Does this Vegan Parm cheese last?
The fact that this recipe is not made with fresh ingredients makes it last if properly stored. I can’t tell you exactly how much as I always use it within a couple of weeks, but I am sure it will last at least for a month.
Why adding Nutritional Yeast to your diet is a good idea?
According to WebMed, nutritional yeast is rich in nutrients often lacking from vegetarian and vegan diets. It’s also free of gluten, soy, and sugar, making it an excellent dietary addition for people with food sensitivities. However, research shows that its nutritional content can benefit any diet.
