4-ingredients. 2 mins. Vegan parmesan FTW! Flavour all the things! My vegan parmesan is perfect for adding a nutty, sweet-savoury flavour to all kinds of dishes. It's soy- and gluten-free too.
2-Minute Vegan Parmesan Recipe
Parmigiano, Pecorino, Grana Padano - I love the taste of them all but alas, they're not even vegetarian, much less vegan. So what's a body to do when she still craves that savoury, almost-nutty flavour that goes so well with pasta sauces, on top of baked potatoes, and to put the finishing touches to pizza?
Why, make it, of course!
I've tried proprietary brands in the past, and to be honest, they're not up to much, in my opinion (unless you actually like your food to smell like old socks). Besides, they're expensive and not that easy to come by when you're living in Eastern Europe.
Not gonna pretend otherwise. Which is why you have to try my vegan parmesan - it's amazing.
Does this vegan parmesan behave the same as dairy?
Will my vegan parmesan fool dairy cheese aficionados? Unlikely but that's not the point; the point is that this is something which adds a very similar flavour and texture to hard Italian cheese, which vegans can eat.
And because I only use fair trade cashews, no humans have suffered to put food on the table. I call that a win!
(The infographic above was part of a fair trade cashew campaign I worked on for Traidcraft.)
How long does vegan parmesan keep?
In an airtight jar at room temperature, about six months. I haven't tried freezing it.
