Nut-Free Vegan Parmesan Cheese

Being dairy-free doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite foods. Because I have to follow a low-fat diet, in addition to being gluten dairy-free, I am always looking to make my favorite recipes to meet these requirements.

There are a lot of vegan Parmesan cheese recipes out there and most of them contain nuts or seeds.  I am not allergic to nuts or seeds, but they are very high in fat.  So, that left me with a challenge to find a nut substitute for this recipe.  What’s the secret ingredient?  Oat Flour!  It’s low in fat and just as tasty as the nut versions.  For this recipe I used oat flour that I ground in my food processor from quick oats.

Nut-Free Vegan Parmesan Cheese
3/4 cup oat flour
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder

Combine all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend 30 seconds to combine well.  Store in air tight container.
