I was shocked when I first tried this and realized how close it tasted to regular Parmesan cheese.
Vegan Parmesan cheese is a staple in my house. We have kick-named this recipe “sprinkle cheese” because we sprinkle in onto so many of our meals. There’s always a batch handy in the fridge, and it gets taken out frequently since it’s so tasty with so many recipes.

Easy Vegan Parmesan Cheese Recipe with 3 Ingredients
I like to experiment in the kitchen, and sometimes it doesn’t always go as planned… whenever there is a meal that’s only okay, we just sprinkle on this cheese, and it magically makes the food taste better.
Another great benefit to this vegan Parmesan cheese is that it’s made from cashews and nutritional yeast, both of which add plant-based protein to your meal. It’s always nice to add a nutrition boost to a meal, and there is no better way to do that (in my opinion) than with this sprinkle cheese!
I haven’t officially tested how long this 3 ingredient vegan Parmesan cheese recipe will last in the fridge. However, all 3 ingredients are shelf stable (none of the 3 will go bad for months on end in the cupboard). So it’s safe to say this will likely last quite well, for a while, in the fridge. We’ve never had a batch last more than 2-3 weeks, so I won’t make any guarantees past that point.
I hope you give this simple vegan Parmesan cheese recipe a try. It really will revolutionize you life and enhance so many of your meals. Let me know in the comments below what you think of it after you give it a try!
3 Ingredient Vegan Parmesan Cheese
- Place all 3 ingredients into a blender and pulse on low until you get a finely ground texture. Be very careful not to over-blend, as the cashews will start turning into cashew butter; you will get a sticky, clumpy mix if this happens (no worries though, it will still taste good, it just won’t sprinkle).
