Vegan MoFo Day 11: Our Parm
I love nooch. Nutritional yeast, if you aren't familiar with the term. It's a vegetarian B-12 supplement that resembles "cheese" in its color and slightly in flavor. It's not the same thing as cheese though, so don't expect that! I love nooch so much, I like to eat it on its own sometimes.
A bit dry, a little chewy, but dang, so good.
The other day, my two year old asked for some nooch from the jar. Not on anything in particular, just plain nooch. That's my girl.
Nooch is an important ingredient in the vegan parmesan I make. My recipe is made with stuff we generally have on hand based on the recipe from Yellow Rose Recipes by Joanna Vaught. (Limited copies left! If you want this book, now is the time! It is one of my favorites.) It's great to use around the house and we even take it with us to the local pizza place-order a pie without cheese and apply your parm liberally.
1/3 cup of hemp seeds
1/3 cup of walnuts
1/3 cup of nooch
1/3 cup of brown rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
