Vegan "Grated" Parmesan Cheese


Almonds and nutritional yeast blend together to replace aged Italian cheese for those who don't want to eat real cheese. The taste is so similar when used in pesto or on top of pasta, it is hard to tell the difference. Try on top of popcorn too. This combination is chock-full-of nutrients too!
