So… You have a friend coming over who can’t do dairy, and you want to serve something that calls for Parmesan cheese. Here’s my faux parmesan recipe.
- 1 Tbl miso
- 1 Tbl olive oil
- 4 Tbl pinenuts
- 2 Tbl pecans (If you have a friend who is allergic to tree nuts, roasted sunflower seeds work)
- 1/4 tsp sugar
Put it all in a food processor and blend the heck out of it.
Now, you can use it as a 1 to 1 substitute in a recipe. Obviously, it doesn’t melt, but it has that nutty, sweet, salty thing that Parmesan has. And if you want that crusty cheesy goodness on top of a casserole? Mix it with bread crumbs, spread it on the casserole and it toasts up beautifully. (Yes, it works with gluten-free breadcrumbs)
