Vegan Pepita "Parm"

Although I do not eat a vegan diet 100% of the time, as someone who eats a very flexible diet pattern I do enjoy a lot of vegan alternative foods and meals. And as a dietitian who supports individuals with their plant-based eating goals, I find it's important for me to experiment in the kitchen and bring new ideas and easy recipes "to the table":)

Vegan parmesan is really easy to make! I experimented with using both cashews and pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) as the base, but I found the pepita version to be way tastier!



1/2 cup unsalted pepitas

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (I am using the Bragg brand but I don't think brand matters)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


1) Add all the ingredients to a small food processor or a good blender

2) Blend until the pepitas are chopped into a meal or powder consistency

3) Store in the refrigerator to maintain freshness
