This vegan cashew parmesan is brilliant on pasta, pizza, rice, roasted vegetables etc… Great for all vegan dishes or if you are on a dairy-free diet.
This recipe requires no cooking and can easily be incorporated as part of your weekly meal-prep. There is no need to soak the cashews, simply make sure you use raw unsalted nuts. You can substitute cashews for some other nuts like unsalted blanched almonds. And of course fairtrade nuts are always best.
The added bonus is that it is also much cheaper to make vegan parmesan at home rather than buying it from the shops.
