My boy invented this dairy free, soya free, vegan cheese substitute, and I think it's super yummy. It makes lovely cheese flavoured stuff to sprinkle over pizza or pasta.
It's simple to make too, you'll need,
Bread crumbs (the kind that come in a tub)
and a pestle and mortar.
The measurements are flexible and it's best to try it out and adjust to your own tastes.
Pop some pine nuts into the pestle and mortar, about a tablespoon or so, depending on how much vegan cheese sprinkles you need. Crush them with the pestle and mortar.
Add some breadcrumbs and crush a bit more.
Mix in some nutritional yeast flakes.
Add a little, tiny pinch of salt and some onion granules. Give the mixture a final crush in the pestle and mortar and then it's ready to use.
We usually use this as a pizza topping, but you can use it however you like, maybe on an oven bake, or over pasta.
I also love using nutritional yeast flakes to make my own vegan cheesy crisps.
