Here is what you will need and how to make it:

3 Ingredient, Vegan Parmesan Cheese


1 Cup raw, unsalted Brazil nuts, rinsed in a fine mesh strainer

4 cloves garlic, peeled

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Place the garlic in your food processor and pulse a couple times to break up the garlic and allow for even distribution throughout your “cheese”.

Now add your Brazil nuts, sea salt and process for about 20 – 30 seconds more, scraping down the sides if necessary.

Remove from your food processor and store in a mason jar or other container with a fitted lid in your fridge or freezer.

Enjoy 🙂

*Since Brazil nuts are high in Selenium, it is advised to only eat about 1 – 2 nuts per day, which probably breaks down to about 1 – 2 Tablespoons of this cheese.
