Cheeze-lovers, listen up! If you’re a fan of super simple and easy-to-make cheese substitutes that are not only healthier than regular parmesan cheese but will only take 5 minutes of your time, you’re going to love this almond parmesan cheese. All you’ll need is a high-speed blender and 5 ingredients and voilà! 🙂 I have made big jars full of this amazing cheeze in the past few weeks and can’t wait to share this recipe with you. It’s so simple, yet so genius! The almond parmesan cheeze will go perfectly on top of pasta dishes (I made a delicious lasagna, which I will share with you soon), pizza, rice and basically anything. It has already become one of my favourite recipes, just because it is so easy to make and tastes amazing, so I’m sure that you’ll love it as much as I do! 🙂
The only thing that is essential for this recipe is that you blanch your almonds before throwing them into the blender (as you don’t want to be left with pieces of the almonds skin inside the cheeze). But, not to worry, blanching almonds takes only about 2 minutes of your time. Simply cook the almonds in boiling water for exactly 1 minute (not longer as you don’t want the almonds to become soft), immediately rinse them with cold water afterwards and pop the nuts out of their skin with your thumbs. Super easy and effective!
