No-Harm Parm

My grandparents were born in Italy, and I have fond memories of the Parmesan cheese on my grandmother’s table. This recipe is so easy and delicious, you’ll be able to give up the cholesterol and saturated fat-laden version for this cruelty-free, cholesterol-free version.

 

No-Harm Parm

 

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

 

  1. Grind flax seeds in a spice mill, coffee grinder or blender. Be careful to stop when the seeds resemble Parmesan cheese, or you will end up with tahini.
  2. Pulse walnuts until they’re the texture of Parmesan cheese.
  3. Blend the ground flax seeds and walnuts with nutritional yeast and salt in a bowl. Transfer to a covered jar and refrigerate. Use to top soups, pastas, pizzas, or anything else that is calling for a little Parmesan love.
