Simple vegan Cheese recipes

"Here are some quick, super easy to follow vegan cheese recipes."

Best Vegan Cheese Parmesan

An easy vegan cheese parmesan recipe that’s just delicious:

  • 3/4 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

This makes about 1 cup of parmesan. Simply blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until the desired fineness is achieved. Keeping it in the fridge means it will last several weeks! It’s the perfect addition for pasta, lentil cottage pie, Mexican wraps, lasagnes and many more.
