Did you know there's a dairy-free parmesan cheese? It's made of cashews and onion sea salt. That's all. For cashew parmesan cheese, put 1/2 cup cashews and 1/4 teaspoon of onion sea salt in a blender, food processor or nut chopper and process until crumbled parmesan cheese is achieved. Don't overprocess or the mixture will turn into cashew butter. Taste and add more salt if needed. Use on spaghetti, the minestrone recipe, and other pasta dishes.
