This nut free dairy free parmesan cheese tastes amazing sprinkled over just about anything! Free of all major allergens, packed with nutrients, and best of all, my kids gobble it down!
I’ve seen some recipes floating around for homemade vegan parmesan cheese over the years, but they all had nuts. I made some using a variety of different nuts, but since no one else in my family likes nuts, they hated every version that I tried.
While using hemp seeds for another recipe, I realized that they would be a great texture and flavor for vegan parmesan!
I ground up the hemp seeds with some nutritional yeast, salt, and a little garlic powder with my immersion blender. It tasted pretty good, but it wasn’t exactly the right consistency. I added some gluten free flour to mellow out the flavor and make it less sticky, and it worked! My kids sprinkle it on everything now!
I’m thrilled that my family is eating raw hemp seeds! They are a great source of vitamins, including omega-3 and omega-6 as, well as packed with protein!
The recipe couldn’t be easier, just add the ingredients to an immersion blender container and pulse for a few seconds making sure to grind up the seeds well, and your done! (You can use a regular blender or food processor too). It literally takes about 3 minutes to make a batch!
