Vegan “Parmesan” Sprinkle

All Sauces, Seasonings, Dips, & Dressings


I totally hear you! 

Here is my simple vegan parmesan sprinkle that will totally give you all those cheesy vibes! 😬 🧀

I love this sprinkled over my zoodles “pasta" dishes, on top of salads, soups, anything in a marinara sauce like meatballs, and more! ❤️

This is perfect if you are doing a Whole30 or Clean-in-15 and hopefully makes it just a little easier.  Only 4 ingredients and ready in literally two minutes flat!

An added benefit – the ingredient that gives this sprinkle its cheesy flavor is nutritional yeast which is full of B12, a vitamin many vegetarians & vegans might be deficient in.

I have a nut-free version for you as well and it’s a simple swap from cashews to sunflower seeds.  If using sunflower seeds, just make sure you aren’t over-processing.  The seeds are quite soft and you could end up with more of a flour consistency which we don’t want.

You can also half the batch but this keeps well in the fridge for up to two months (maybe longer, but I haven’t tested)
