Dairy Free ‘Parmesan’ Cheese

Dairy Free Parmesan CheeseThe one last link to make for a perfect Friday Night Pizza Night: Dairy free ‘parmesan cheese’. Man, I could eat this by the spoonful. I tried a couple of different variations. One of them turned out to taste like a powdered cheddar that will taste good on popcorn, but that’s for another post at another time. This one is about as close to parmesan as I could get. It has that slightly smokey, salty, nutty flavor like parmesan does. I hope you try it sometime. It tasted great on top of the pizza, really gave it a little bite like parmesan does. It’s also easy to make. Enjoy!

½ Cup Almond Meal
2 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast Flakes
2 Tbsp. Toasted Sesame Seeds*
½ Tsp. Fine Sea Salt
¼ Tsp. Smoked Salt

*To toast the sesame seeds, put into a small sauté pan over medium high heat and stir until the seeds start to pop and smell fragrant. Be careful not to over-cook because they will burn fast.
Add all ingredients to a small food processor or coffee grinder and process until it looks like parmesan cheese (kind of like gritty snow).
