A few simple ingredients in a mini food processor and just like magic you have a delicious vegan faux parmesan or “sprinkle” as our little Sweet Pea likes to call it! Does it taste like the real dairy version of parmesan? Uh, no it doesn’t, but it is delicious sprinkled on the plant based versions of foods that you used to sprinkle the dairy version on. My version is nut free and you have the option of using hemp hearts or not. It’s yummy both ways.
Think pasta or zucchini noodles with our amazing dairy free Creamy Alfredo Sauce or a thick marinara sauce sprinkled with this scrumptious topping.
We love a generous spoonfull over a baked potato stuffed with Red Lentil Chili. Vegan pizza, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli and the list goes on.
Watch the video to see how easy this recipe comes together.

How I store parmesan sprinkle. Does it have to go refrigerated. How long does it keep
I refrigerate mine. It lasts a long time.
I have a question about the cheese sauce. Does it freeze? i’m the only one that eats it and I end up throwing a lot of it away after 5 days which I read was the longest it would last.
Are you asking about the faux Parmesan? It will last weeks in the refrigerator or freezer. If you are asking about Donnas Vegan Cheeze Sauce a different recipe – I have never tried freezing it. You could cut the recipe in half and reduce the amount you make. You can try freezing some and see how it does. Happy Cooking, Tami
This is a life changer. Healthy and delicious. Better than Parmesan. I used oregano as I didn’t have parsley and it is fabulous.
I’m so glad you like this recipe!
