Does it keep?
(optional // 1 Tbsp (15 ml) garlic-infused olive oil)
Add brazil nuts, pine nuts, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, and salt to a food processor or a blender and pulse into a fine meal. If adding garlic powder, add at this time. If adding garlic-infused oil, add after the mixture is a "meal."
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more nutritional yeast for “cheesiness” or salt for saltiness. Garlic powder adds more depth.

, vegan meatballs
, and more!

*Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
*Recipe makes ~1 cup vegan parmesan cheese.
*Note: To avoid selenium toxicity (which is rare) try to avoid consuming more than 4-5 brazil nuts / day on a consistent long-term basis. It is rare, but consuming more than 60 brazil nuts in one day can increase risk for selenium toxicity.
