3 Ingredient Vegan Parmesan Cheese

Brazil nuts are one of the top food sources in the world for selenium which is beneficial for mood, inflammation and also for thyroid health!  This 3 ingredient Vegan Parmesan Cheese Recipe is super easy to make and really good for you too!

I like to make big batches and keep it in the freezer so that I always have it on hand.

This cheese is delicious sprinkled not only on pizzas, but also on quinoa, brown rice and even kale salads.  It adds a healthy, salty bite!!

The food processor I use and LOVE is by Cuisinart:

3 Ingredient Vegan Parmesan Cheese Recipe


Vegan "Parmesan" Cheese

Vegan | Gluten-Free | Anti-Candida
Course Side Dish
Servings 1 cup


  • 1 Cup raw unsalted Brazil nuts, rinsed in a fine mesh strainer
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. 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".
  2. Now add your Brazil nuts, sea salt and process for about 20 - 30 seconds more, scraping down the sides if necessary.
  3. Remove from your food processor and store in a mason jar or other container with a fitted lid in your fridge or freezer.
  4. Enjoy 🙂

Recipe Notes

*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.
