Vegan or lactose intolerant folks need not live without cheese’s magic fairy dust. Many times, when I try to “veganize” a recipe, I’ll read recommended substitutes for extras or garnishes and just say, “meh, not worth it.” Fortunately, this one requires minimal effort, and keeps you from losing out on the added texture and taste that makes a good meal great.This recipe is an impressive cheese hack and the perfect recipe for low-key plant-based food experimentation.
You can pair this vegan parmesan cheese with so many things. We put it on green chile mac n’ cheese, avocado toast with microgreens, and vegan mushroom risotto. Go to town and let us know how you use your vegan parmesan cheese. Leave a comment, rate it, and don’t forget to tag a photo #plantandvine on Instagram.Print
