It's sometimes hard to find substitutes for staples that I used to enjoy when eating a non-plant based diet such as Parmesan Cheese. This version of the cheese that is so connected to pasta, pizza and many other classic Italian dishes it is easy to make and very addicting, not to mention delicious. I used a dry spice container on my Vitamix, but you can use any coffee grinder, spice grinder and many other blenders to achieve the same result.
To your blender/grinder add:
1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews
1/2 cup raw, unsalted almond slivers
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
for a twist you can add some cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, dried Italian herbs, or herbs d'provence. Be creative, but most importantly, enjoy.
