Making your own vegan Parmesan is so fabulous. Keep a batch of this in your fridge and sprinkle it on EVERYTHING!

Did you know that whole brown  sesame seeds (not the white ones you see on burger buns)  contain about 88 mg of calcium per tablespoon of seeds. Just a quarter cup of natural sesame seeds provides more calcium than a whole cup of milk!


1/3 cup sunflower seeds
2/3 cup walnuts
1/2 cup whole brown sesame seeds
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. sea salt


Preheat oven to 300F.
On a baking sheet spread sunflower seeds, walnuts and sesame seeds.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until sunflower seeds are lightly browned.
Cool completely.

In a food processor add sunflower seeds, walnuts, and sesame seeds.
Pulse for 2-3 long pulses, until you have a fine meal-like texture.
Add nutritonal yeast and salt and process again. Don’t over-process or it will start to clump.
Taste for seasoning and add more if needed.

Transfer to a jar and keep refrigerated.
