    Tomorrow morning I am making parmegan, which is Sam Turnbull's vegan parmesan.

    Every one of her recipes that I've tried has worked, and I have her book as well as using her website and I see she says her omnnivore parents munch this and make it in their own home.

    Sounds dead simple! I have to make it tomorrow because we're using the last of the seitan wings cut into strips with some veggies and cheese sauce to go with some pasta. This parmegan will sprinkle over that very nicely.

    I look forward to seeing the results.
    Unfortunately, my inner ornithologist keeps reading “ptarmigan”.

    With the white plumage you’d never find it in the fridge.

    Well that is just about the yummiest, most savoury thing I have ever eaten. And I'm not one bit ashamed to announce I stood there and ate three spoonsful straight out of the jar.....

    Fairly salty so if you use salty cashews cut the spoonful of salt by half at least.

    But oh wow. We're having pasta, veg and sauce tonight and I know what I'm putting on mine!

    My son and daughter in law came for dinner yesterday but during the evening they tasted my parmegan. They have gone off with the whole jar...... they both thought it absolutely delicious and oh-so-savoury....

    I am making more today!

    Sounds like you will be busy keeping the family supplied. Reviews say even the nutritional yeast on its own is really delicious and not only vegans and vegetarians have it because it is so good

    Yep - I use a LOT of engevita (nutritional yeast - easiest to get hold of make in the UK)

    Thank you for the recipe!! I made some and put it on my veggies and tofu! It was delicious! I added no salt at all as I used salted macadamia nuts and that worked great. Thanks for the salt warning.

    Variation - today I used garlic powder in the mix as well. That is just gorgeous!

    Of course - now I have looking at the herb and spices shelves in the cupboard, eyeing them all up ready for the next jar. Sort of curious about a smoky bbq angle to it but it's a very definite spicy flavour - might not go with as much as the parmegan usually does.

    Edited to add: brainwave - mix the parmegan as usual, then split into two lots. Add the BBQ spice to one lot, and something else to the other lot ......

    I was thinking oregano, but since it readily goes over Italian stuff anyway, that usually already has oregano. I left the jar on the counter and I notice my hubby has been using it on some leftover pasta..................I've been trying to get him to eat more nuts, so this works!!!!!

    So now I;m thinking parsley flakes. I put parsley over almost everything lol, it's so good for you. So if I put it in the Parmegan and my hubby uses it, it would be a good way to get him to eat some parsley!

    I bought some nutritional yeast and wow the flavour is awesome I have added it to chopped nuts and used it as it comes for a sprinkle on practically everything cooked stuff and salads and it just makes it all taste better I will try mixing spices and herbs in it. Reviews on it are really good people love it and not just vegans and vegetarians

    Yep! It's an amazing foodstuff. I sprinkle it on my bowl of chopped veggies/salad at lunch - put the veg/salad in, add about 25g of sunflower seeds, pour on some basil olive oil and then add the parmegan. It makes a totally gorgeous lunch. If you can't eat the seeds then there's flax seed, chia, pumpkin - loads of the things to choose from.

    Parmigiano-Reggiano? I recall seeing that being sold in the departure lounge area, duty free section, when I was looking for a breakfast to eat before my flight.

    Dunno - I just call it parmegan since that's what the recipe calls it. It's just cashew nuts, macadamia nuts, nooch (nutritional yeast) and salt if you used unsalted nuts, and any desired herbs/spices. Whizz like crazy until you get the right texture for you. Don't go on for too long or you'll end up with a very savoury sort of nut butter! Pulse the processor is best.

    Having said that, I could go for a savoury nut butter effect and enjoy it on a cracker or two.....

    I need some cracker recipes! Aaargh!
