Sprouting is one of my favorite things to do. You might not understand the pleasure in seeing those little tails form until you’ve actually done it.

Now that I’ve discovered this vegan Parmigiano I can’t go without it. I used to love hard Italian cheeses so much. When I was growing up we always had an entire wheel of Parmigiano and Pecorino and my mother shaved it off fresh for our meals. I’ll admit that it was something I missed when I first went vegan, especially because of the saltiness, but I used nutritional yeast flakes to replace it which I also love. This recipe is perfection. The ratio blend lends to cheese flavor and does not taste like sunflower seeds or nutritional yeast. It is soft, healthy and high in good fats, great on all foods, from pasta, salads, rice, to asian dishes as well. There are no rules, use this on everything. If you have 3 minutes, make it, now. You’ll see how good it is…and please leave a comment how you like it 🙂

Cold brew coffee is the ultimate for those who are seeking a rich coffee taste. It’s healthier and smoother than hot brewed coffee. There is some time involved in the process but it’s well worth it.
