Cashew and Seed Parmesan

This recipe is super quick to make and is a healthy dairy-free alternative to traditional parmesan. This recipe keeps well in your fridge too. You can add this to your pizza, pasta, avocado toast, or just eat it by the spoonful like I was!


– 1/2 cup unsalted cashews
– 1/4 cup unsalted shelled sunflower seeds
– 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
– 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
– 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/2 teaspoon lemon/lime peel, finely grated

1. Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until a powder. It is okay if it has a few small pieces in it for texture.

Running with Veggies

I'm a plant-based distance runner and mother of two young girls. I enjoy making healthy recipes and experimenting with food. I also love to garden, so you will see many seasonal recipes that use what is currently growing in my backyard. I have a HBSc. in Nutrition and a Doctorate in Education and this background provides me with the skills necessary to pursue my passion - educating others on healthy eating. I don't count calories, so you won't find any nutritional information in my recipes. However, I strive to make each recipe healthy enough to fuel you and your family through the day.
