quick and easy dairy free parmesan style cheese

This is such a simple recipe yet it’s really effective. It’s full of flavour yet won’t over dominate the majority of foods that it is added to. It will brighten up a dreary bowl of spaghetti (courgette or otherwise), add some lustre to your salad and is an interesting pairing to your pizza.  It will also add a salty depth of flavour to minestrone.

The secret of success in this recipe is to use a fine microplane grater to grate the Brazil nuts. The end result has the flavour and consistency of a finely grated Parmesan but without any of the dairy. The nutritional yeast and sea salt provides the seasoning.

Once made, this will keep in a jam jar in the fridge for up to 5 days.
