Vegan Parmesan Recipe Rundown:
Almond flour– Your typical parmesan cheese is mostly made up of fats. We took the traditional cheese fat and replaced this with almond flour. Almond flour contains monosaturated fats, that are healthier for you than cheese, which is high in cholesterol and saturated fats. Almond flour also can promote weight loss, healthy heart function, and prevent diabetes. So, incorporating almond flour into your food might sound different at first, you will soon fall in love with the taste, as well as the benefits. Almond flour is the base ingredient because it gives the vegan parm its density and body. If you don’t have Almond flour, it is also possible to make your own almond flour with raw almonds. It is recommended to use a Vitamix or high-power food processor. All you need are raw almonds and blend until small. That’s the secret to making almond flour! If your homemade almond flour has larger chunks than the bought version, its okay, texture is great for this recipe!
Nutritional yeast– Nutritional yeast is the go-to “cheesy flavor” for vegan food. It is light and fluffy. Easy to use with great taste. Here is more information on nutritional yeast.
Salt– We used Himalayan salt but feel free to experiment with whatever salt you have at home. Keep in mind some salts are saltier than others!
Garlic powder – Garlic powder is the only “spice” we use in this recipe. It comes from dehydrated garlic. We have experimented with using raw minced garlic and baking it in the almond flour and nutritional yeast, but using the powder is quicker and easier. Then again, if you don’t have garlic powder on hand you could always mince the garlic, mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Then bake on low-medium heat till slightly brown. The garlic powder is wonderful because it gives this recipe the kick it needs. Feel free to adjust the amount of garlic powder for your version of this recipe.
