This vegan cashew parmesan cheese is now my go-to parm. There is a mason jar full of it in my fridge right now. There was a jar of it in the fridge last week. And there will be a jar in the fridge next week at this time.

 

WHAT I NEED TO MAKE PARMESAN CHEESE AT HOME?

  • Raw cashews
  • Gluten Free Nutritional yeast
  • sea salt
  • garlic powder
  • BLENDER OR FOOD PROCESSOR

IS THIS VEGAN PARMESAN CHEESE GLUTEN FREE

Yes! as you see it is only 4 ingredients that don’t contain any gluten. Make sure to use gluten free. nutritional yeast.

DO I HAVE TO USE NUTRUTIONAL YEAST

If you don’t have nutritional yeast you can substitute per tablespoon: 2-3 teaspoons Brewer’s yeast (slightly bitter) OR – 2-3 teaspoons Yeast extract.

WHAT CAN I USE INSTEAD OF CASHEWS

If you’re allergic to cashews and cashews only, you can make this recipe with:

  • Almonds
  • Pecans
  • WALNUTS
  • Pine nuts
  • Macadamia nuts
  • HEMP SEEDS
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • If all nuts and seeds are off limits, you could use a mixture of all nutritional yeast and salt. It’ll be different, but it’ll still be nice. You could even toss in some bread crumbs for the texture that nuts usually create. Herbs and spices could help to jazz it up, too.

If you have a tree nut allergy but you can tolerate seeds, try:

Optional add-ins

If you’d like to go beyond the basics, you can certainly add additional seasonings to your cashew parmesan cheese. These could include:

  • Onion powder
  • Dried thyme
  • Turmeric
  • Dried rosemary
  • Smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (for a spicy version)
  • Dried oregano

This perennial condiment goes on anything and everything in my home. I use it on pasta, SALADS, and BOWLS.
