Truffled Parmesan

Day 24a: I can’t stop snacking on this. It is very rich, though, so I only pick at a little at a time. I made more pasta just so I could put this on the top. I halved the ingredients and it was plenty. I’ll put the full recipe below.
Truffled Parmesan

2 cups raw pine nuts
2 Tbs lemon juice
3 Tbs truffle oil
1 1/2 Tbs onion granules (I made my own in my dehydrator)
2 1/2 Tbs nutritional yeast
1/2 Tsb sea salt
Small amount of water to blend

In a high-powered blender (I use a Vitamix) or a food processor, blend nuts, lemon juice, truffle oil, onion granules, nutritional yeast and salt. (I ground the nuts up first and then added everything else).

Slowly add water until you get a thick, creamy consistency. Don’t do what I did first time, and dump a bunch of water in!

Scoop out onto your dehydrator try covered in a paraflex sheet. (If you are baking in the oven, I guess spread thinly onto a baking sheet – post below what you do, oven-wise, for everyone, as I have no idea). Spread out thinly and evenly.

Dehydrate for 8-10 hours at about 110 degrees Farenheit (43 Celsius), until almost fully dry. Flip onto a dehydrator screen and dehydrate for a further 2-3 hours, or until crisp.  Truffled Parmesan 2

Once dried, break into pieces and store in a sealed container.

    Sounds interesting, Was the Parmesan cheese accidentally omitted?

      OOPS – At the time of my earlier post I had no idea the recipes on this Blog were vegan.

      “Truffled Parmesan” is a listed ingredient in a recipe I want to try. Having no idea what it was or how to make it I went to Google. The link for this page was one of the choices.

      I’m glad I stumbled across your site – I look forward to trying several of the recipes.

      Thank you for sharing your experience.

      Oh, well, this is an alternative to standard truffled parmesan. This site was started as part of a 60-day challenge in which I would make a new raw or vegan dish a day. Folks kept asking for the recipes, so I started the blog:
      In the raw world, they seem to have a habit of calling things cheese when they are, obviously, not!
