Easy Vegan Cashew Parmesan ★★★★★1 review

All you need is a food processor or a blender with a milling blade, four ingredients and in a matter of 5 minutes you will have a perfectly tasty vegan parmesan!

Serves 10 | Prep time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 0 mins


  • 100g/3.5oz raw cashews (abt 3/4 cup)
  • 12g/0.4oz (3 Tbsp) nutritional yeast powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or a blender with a milling blade.
  2. Pulse the ingredients using short pulses until the cashews are finely ground. Take care not to over-process, otherwise the mix will become sticky and won’t sprinkle well.
  3. Serve over pasta dishes, salads, risotto, pizza, or whatever you fancy!

    I make this all the time (garlic powder optional) and it’s the best! Dead easy to make and I leave it in a glass jar in my cupboard and it seems to keep well. Cheaper and better than the commercially available brands.
