This week I joined The Dr. Oz Show once again and shared the recipe for my 4-Ingredient Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese.
This week I was excited to join The Dr. Oz Show once again, this time for the Dairy Debate episode. I got to talk about the best dairy-free products on the market including ice creams and cheese. I even got to demonstrate my 4-Ingredient Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese recipe.
What is dairy-free parmesan cheese? It’s a mixture of cashews, nutritional yeast, salt and garlic powder. When you grind them up in a food processor, it turns into a delicious, crumbly mixture that’s a great vegan substitute for parmesan cheese! It’s perfect for topping pasta, soup, popcorn, garlic bread, anything!
Nutritional yeast is one of the main ingredients in this dairy-free parmesan cheese. If you’ve never had it, it’s an inactive yeast that has a naturally nutty, cheesy flavor. You can find it in health food stores, specialty grocery stores or online. It’s popular in the vegan world because it adds a pop of flavor to a wide variety of dishes and it’s also a very good source of vitamin B12, which is typically only found in animal products.
