Raw Vegan Cashew Parmesan

Here is my Cashew Parmesan. It’s so easy to make and taste so delicious. The “nutritional yeast” used to make raw parmesan is a deactivated form of yeast, high in B12, it’s a complete protein, contains the B vitamins, no sugar or gluten and contains iron. Stays good in fridge for about a month.

Ingredients

1 cup cashews
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Method

Add all ingredients into a food processor using the small blade. Pulse to a fine texture but don,t over do it as it may start turning into a butter.
