Pass the cheese, please.

parmesan cheese

Did you know when you finely chop certain nuts – particularly Brazil nuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts – that they resemble and taste a lot like Parmesan cheese? Although devoted vegans have known this trick for years, this information may be new to you. However, once you sprinkle this “Parmesan Cheese” on your favorite Daniel Fast dishes, you will be pleasantly surprised at how good it tastes.

“Parmesan Cheese”

1 cup lightly-salted cashew halves and pieces

Add cashews to food processor and blender. Process about 15 seconds or until cashews resemble the texture of Parmesan cheese.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 tablespoon)

Recipe Notes


  1. Will this store for some time? Air tight container? Fridge or cupboard? I am going to make some and add a bit of nutritional yeast too.
