So my family loves cheese. I love cheese, however cheese doesn't love me. I am lactose intolerant, or as my brother Mike says "You're not lactose intolerant, people are intolerant to you eating lactose." If you don't know what he means by that, ask what happens when someone eats dairy that shouldn't eat dairy. :)
One cheese I miss is Parmesan. After trying a few alternative recipes, I came up with this quick and easy healthy substitute. You can put this stuff on everything, Caesar salads, soups, pasta...you name it. Store it in your fridge for up to 2 weeks (if it lasts that long).
Vegan Hemp Seed Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/8-1/4 tsp sea salt (depending on how much you like salt)
- 1 tsp olive oil
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until everything is incorporated. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!
