pine nut parmesan

slightly adapted from here

I enjoy parmesan cheese,  for my daughter and husband who avoid eating dairy this is a great substitute, it is so tasty that I find myself using it as well.

ingredients :

½ cup pine nuts

2 Tblsp unhulled sesame seed

2 Tblsp sunflower seeds

1 tsp lemon zest

4 Tblsp nutritional yeast (sold in the UK under Engevita & in Australia it is called savoury yeast flakes)

¼ tsp Himilayan salt

preparation :

Heat a small skillet over medium heat, add the pine nuts and seeds, toast until golden, stirring and watch constantly to avoid burning them.  Transfer to a bowl to cool.

In a small food processor/upright blender, add the pine nuts, sesame, sunflower seeds, lemon zest, nutritional yeast and salt, grind until coarsely ground.  I like it quite coarse with a few seeds whole for a little crunch and surprise.  Check seasonings and adjust to your liking.  Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator.
