Vegan Parmesan Cheese -GF- Nut Free- Soy Free-

You all know that Parmesan cheese that you get in packets from pizza places or in a shakable bottle at the grocery store. It’s basically like cocaine for your pasta. It might taste really good… but it is really not good for you.

Studies done in 2012 by the FDA actually found most “Parmesan cheese” found at the store contains no real Parmesan cheese, and they often contain sketchy ingredients like wood pulp… WOOD PULP?!

If you are vegan you probably understand the many benefits that come along with ditching dairy, but even if you are not this “cheese” recipe is a great alternative to highly- processed, high- sodium Parmesan cheese you buy at the store.

This super easy- three ingredient vegan Parmesan cheese will please everyone in your family and can be used as a replacement for that icky stuff you top your pizza with.
