Cashew Parmesan Cheese

Cashew Parmesan Cheese

  • Author: Nina | Tofu Test Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 0 mins
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/4 cups 1x


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp brewers yeast*
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times until desired consistency. Do not blend, or else the mixture will turn into more of a paste. 


*You can omit the brewer’s yeast and just use 4 tbsp nutritional yeast instead, but I like to use half nutritional yeast and half brewers yeast for a more traditional cheesy flavor. You can find both at most grocery stores these days, or here on Amazon:
