Faux Parmesan

  • Prep-time:
  • Makes 1½ cups

Always have this delicious topping on hand in your fridge to sprinkle on chili, soups and stews. It’s also delicious on steamed vegetables, like broccoli and air popped popcorn. You can by this is the store but it’s so much more economical to make your own and it won’t contain salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds or cashews or walnuts
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning (I prefer Benson’s Table Tasty)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor fitted with the “S” blade or in a blender, combine all ingredients until a powdery texture is achieved. If you like it chunkier, process less.

    Chef’s Note: You can also use store bought almond flour in place of the almonds. We use this on everything from air popped popcorn to potatoes to steamed veggies and as a topping on chili and soups.
