Being married to a partially Italian man with an Italian father, I knew I had to figure out a way of including a ‘Parmesan-like’ topping on some of my dishes. This works really well with pasta dishes, salads, soups and bowl foods.

Ingredients

    For the Nut Parmesan
  • 60 g (2 oz / 1/2 cup) almond flour
  • 60 g (2 oz / 1/2 cup) unsalted hazelnuts, or buy toasted if you prefer
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • To Add In:
  • chilli flakes (red pepper flakes) – for the daring spice lovers
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast – for the fully fledged vegans

Directions

  1. If you don’t have pre-toasted hazelnuts, start by toasting the nuts in a hot frying pan (skillet) until slightly brown and let cool.
  2. Once cool, either crush in a pestle and mortar or whizz in a food processor or coffee grinder until you get a chunky consistency.
  3. Simply mix the rest of the ingredients together and you have the perfect sprinkle for pasta dishes, salads and anything you would normally grate Parmesan over.
  4. Use either of the add-ins for extra flavour impact.
  5. This works really well with pasta dishes, salads, soups and bowl foods.
