A vegan store cupboard staple

When I first learnt how to make vegan “parmesan” at a cheese making workshop by the KindaCo I had no idea how much of a game changer it would be. This delicious dust adds tonnes of flavour to pasta, pizza, salads and so much more! I will sprinkle it on just about everything given the chance. I’ve tweaked the recipe slightly and now I make sure I always have a large jar of it in my cupboard. This recipe will make enough to fill a 500 ml jar which should last at least a month depending on how greedy you are. If you use an airtight clip top jar like mine it will keep for ages. The only thing that will stop it lasting a long time is how delicious it is!

To make vegan parmesan you need just 5 ingredients: ground almonds, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and nutritional yeast. If you don’t own a blender, the beauty of using ground almonds means its not the end of the world, but for best results give it a whizz in a blender until its the perfect parmesan consistency.
