This Easy Vegan Parmesan Cheese is SO authentic, I doubt anyone would even know it was dairy free.
Why Make My Vegan Parmesan Cheese?
It’s super duper easy and comes together in like 1 minute! You can use it to top anything, and it lasts for a long time in the fridge-up to two weeks! But, don’t worry, I doubt it will last that long anyways!
The secret ingredient is the critic acid. It gives the cashews the “zing” associated with a sharp cheese like Parmesan.
Have fun feeding your guests and seeing if anyone notices!
I use my Vitamix to make this, but any blender or food processor will work!
