Vegan Parmesan cheese, flavorful and cheesy. It’s delicious, ready in less than 5 minutes and you only need 4 ingredients to make it. Wonderfully good!


  • 1 cup raw, unsalted cashews (150 g)
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or a powerful blender and blend until well mixed.
  2. Use it to make vegan pesto, sprinkle it over a plate of vegan pasta Alfredo or some vegan pizza, or simply add it to all your favorite dishes.
  3. Keep the leftovers in a sealed container the fridge for several weeks.


  • You could also use roasted nuts, but I think this vegan Parmesan cheese tastes better when it’s made with raw nuts.
  • Add any spices or fresh or dried herbs you’d like.
  • Be careful not to over blend the mixture or you’ll get a kind of cashew butter instead.
