|Raw vegan parmesan cheez|
In a couple of recent posts, raw courgette pasta and raw pastas pestos and sauces I talked about raw pastas and sauces.
And of course pasta wouldn't be pasta without parmesan cheese.
At our last dinner party, we served a raw sweet potato pasta and tangy tomato sauce, with a vegan parmesan cheez.
|Vegan parmesan cheez - just like the real thing!|
I found a recipe for parmesan in Judita Wignall's "Raw and Simple" book. So thanks to her for this great one.
It really is simple, and looks and feels just like parmesan.
The recipe as per her book -
1/2 cup cashew nuts
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a spice grinder.
I was a bit concerned that using fresh garlic would make the cheez too wet and sticky, so I replaced the garlic with onion powder.
(Next time I will try using the dried garlic flakes)
I also thought there would not be enough, so I doubled up the recipe - and now have lots left over!
This book has loads more raw recipes that we are just longing to try.
