this is something so, so easy to put together, but if you’ve never tried it it might seem hard to make. we make a batch once a month, keeping it in an airtight container, and it adds a ton of flavor to most any dish we make.
pour a cup of raw almonds, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1-2 tsp kosher salt, and 1 tsp garlic powder into a ziploc bag. (alternatively, if you have a food processor, you can use that and skip to step four.)
close the bag, and put it into another ziploc bag and close that.
smash the almond mixture with a hammer until everything has a similar consistency, small granules.
pour into an airtight container and store in the fridge.
serve with hot pasta or on salads, or wherever else you’d use traditional parmesan.
This stuff is genius! We welcome all easy, cheesy condiments with open arms.
