Just curious, when was the last time you started devouring a serving of Parmesan cheese – by the spoonful? Well upon taste-testing my takes-two-minutes-to-make, three-ingredient Vegan Parmesan Cheezy Sprinkle – I went from tiny nibbles to a giant spoonful – one bite and my spoonful was gone. But really, I’m not usually downing shots of cheezy sprinkle – this stuff is just that yummy.
This recipe came about when I started reading the main ingredients in my “store bought” vegan Parm bottles and realized I could probably make this stuff myself. And I not only loved how fresh the flavor was, but how gosh darn simple the ingredients are. You can sprinkle this stuff over just about anything to boost flavor and nutrition. Oh yeah, I didn’t even get to the part about how much healthier this Parmesan is than the real thing! I will show you…
