One of the simplest cheeses to make at home is this Cashew Parmesan cheese. I suggest using an electric nut or coffee grinder, but if you don't own one, a small food processor will do the trick. From just a few pantry staples, you will always have a healthy garnish on hand to sprinkle like fairy dust all over your favourite Italian dishes
Cashew Parmesan Cheese
MAKES ½ CUP | 5 MINUTES
½ cup cashews
¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
Place all ingredients into a coffee grinder and grind to a fine meal. You can use a small food processor instead, but the cashew parmesan may result in a chunkier texture.
Adjust seasonings to taste and serve on top of pasta, soups, stews or baked dishes.
TRY THIS! No cashews? Almonds, walnuts, pine nuts or macadamia nuts work well. Even sunflower seeds, although they will produce a much richer flavour.
