So first thing – there is no parmesan cheese in this. This is a cheese alternative so to speak. You’ve probably heard of vegan parmesan which is essentially a dairy-free replacement for parmesan cheese. Usually its a mix of cashews and nutritional yeast.

I, however wanted to try it with hemps seeds. I roast hemp seeds with spices and they are amazing so I thought they may work for this and it did. You get a nuttiness from the hemp and the cheesiness from the nutritional yeast.

My vegan friends approve! This can be used anywhere you would use parmesan. I like it on pasta and on salads. Did I mention this is super healthy? Both hemp seeds and nutritional yeast have lots of great health benefits, and this is a great way to get more of these foods into your diet.


Yield: 1 cup


  • food processor


  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  •  Put all ingredients into a food processor and grind to a parmesan consistency
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


I use my Nutribullet with the grinder blade to get that parmesan consistency. 
Use this as you would parmesan in your dishes. 
What’s nutritional yeast? Common among vegans for it’s B12 content, it’s a deactivated yeast.

Hemp seeds are considered a superfood for their protein content and all the vitamins and mineral they pack into a few tablespoons.
