  • ¾ cup raw cashews sub hulled hemp seeds if nut-free
  • ¼ cup hulled hemp seeds/hemp hearts
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Combine all ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until you're satisfied with the consistency. It should be fine like traditional parmesan cheese.


NUT-FREE: To make this recipe nut-free, simply swap the cashews for more hulled hemp seeds.
