Vegan Parmesan Cheese (parmesão vegano)


This vegan parmesan cheese is easy to prepare, and for me tastes even better than the real one. It’s cheesy, savory, nutty and super versatile.
It takes only five minutes to prepare and there’s no cooking involved. Plus it’s healthier than normal cheese.
This vegan parmesan cheese goes really well with lots of different dishes. So if you have a permanent batch of this in your refrigerator, you can sprinkle it on absolutely everything.  I love it so much, that sometimes I just eat it with a spoon ?
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 4 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you get a fine meal.
Taste and adjust the garlic, salt and, nutritional yeast if needed.
Store in a glass jar at room temperature, or in the fridge for several weeks.

Este queijo parmesão vegano é fácil de preparar e, para mim, tem um sabor ainda melhor do que o original.

Leva apenas cinco minutos a preparar e não envolve tachos nem panelas. Além disso, é mais saudável que o queijo normal.

O queijo parmesão vegano vai muitíssimo bem com inúmeros pratos. O ideal mesmo, é ter sempre um fraco de parmesão em stock no frigorifico. Eu gosto tanto tanto deste queijo que às vezes o como à colherada.

  • 1 caneca de caju cru
  • 4 c. de sopa de levedura nutricional
  • 1/2 c. de chá de sal
  • 1 c. de chá de alho em pó

Adicionar todos os ingredientes a um processador de alimentos e pulsar até que esteja tudo triturado.

Provar e ajustar o alho, sal e levedura nutricional, se necessário.

Guardar num frasco de vidro à temperatura ambiente, ou no frigorifico, por várias semanas.

    Since we’re not vegan, but mostly vegetarian, this is the type of substitution we don’t normally need to attempt, but it sounds intriguing. Thank you.

    I’ve always thought vegan cheese recipes looks so ‘scary’, but this one looks super doable! Thanks for sharing!

      I know what you mean, I used the thing the same… But the true is there are really simple and tasty ways to make different vegan cheeses.

    Gotta try this recipe! We’re both currently on the hunt for some tasty dairy-free cheese options and haven’t had much luck with store brands yet.

    • Ana Rocha ??

      Never tried with almonds I always use cashews because has a neutral flavor but I will try next time with almonds 🙂 do you do the other ingredients in the same proportion ?
