Blanched Almond Vegan Parmesan (Plant Paradox friendly)

This our go-to replacement for parmesan. It’s quick to make, cheesy, salty, free of most allergens and totally free of lectins. Enjoy on vegan broccoli cheddar soup, spaghetti & meatballs, lemon caper pasta, one-pot chili, or on anything you’d usually put parmesan on!

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
