Loyal followers are aware we have tried to make a cheese-analog before, but this walnut parm was mind blowing. MINDBLOWING. “And it’s soo simple!” as Tyron Biggums would say..
Last time we tried sesame seeds since we had those laying around. Last night we used walnuts, and SWEETBABYJESUS it was good! We blended the walnuts with nutritional yeast and salt, the first batch was almost a paste due most likely to me leaving the grinder running for too long and realllllly extracting the oil from the walnuts (this paste-like cheesy spread would be great for crackers or grilled sammies). The second attempt, I pulsed the grinder and got a good powder consistency much more suitable for sprinkling onto pasta. Seriously, this fauxparm is the best, BEST. I was floored. It was cheesy, salty, fatty.. almost creamy, it practically melted in my mouth, no joke! I am excited to try new nutty combinations like pistachio, cashew, almond.. hazelnuts? Sunflower seeds?? Pecans????? Who knows! The possibilities are limitless! I sense vegan pizza in our near future.. Stay tuned!
