This Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese alternative is allergy friendly and a really easy vegan recipe for beginners! It can be used in any way a traditional Parmesan would be. I would avoid using it to top soups-this will not melt, and You may end up with a bunch of crumbled cashews in the bottom!
A word of caution: if you are using a high powered blender don't go too crazy here. There have been times I have ended up with Parmesan cheese on the top, cashew butter on the bottom!
