Snootch to tha Nootch!

Here’s my quick and clean recipe for “Vegan Parmesan,” which doesn’t taste anything like Parigiano-Reggiano but instead is like a delightful savory umami magic sprinkle for All the Things. If I add some lemon and parsley to it, it becomes a gluten-free, vegan gremolata. WHAT.

1 cup toasted walnuts

3 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or more if desired

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

If desired, add 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest and 2 tablespoons fresh parsley

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is sandy and the granules are fairly small. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 6 weeks.
