Cashew Parmesan cheese

Sharing is caring!

Mmmm Cashew Parmesan cheese is delicious! Cashews are pretty amazing little nuts. They pack a flavor punch, they can thicken things, they can make things creamy, and they make things taste cheesy! I mean who couldn’t love them? Even my 5 year old loves them and that tells a lot! Cashews also pack a punch in the nutrition department, but we will save that talk for another day, you just came here for a recipe after all.

You need 5 ingredients and that’s it to be on your way to some delicious Cashew Parmesan cheese. I almost always have this on hand in a little container in my fridge. It comes in handy for all sorts of recipes. I use it one for one in any recipe that calls for traditional Parmesan cheese.

I use a small twister Blendtec blender jar for making it. Throw all the ingredients in and it grinds it all up in about 10 seconds. It’s amazing and it’s so much easier than pulling out a food processor. However, a processor will do the job as well. I just keep my blender base on my counter at all times and my food processor is totally awesome, but more tucked away.
