Fridge-Free Vegan Parmesan Sprinkle

By Hayley Tia

Opting to go plant-based can come with its challenges but this plant-based alternative to parmesan rivals that punch of cheesy goodness required for our Boatyard Bolognese. It is also packed with nutrients, a complete cinch to make, and can be stored for weeks out of the fridge- it is the perfect addition to any boat galley.

Vegan parmasan sprinkle


4 tablespoons hemp seeds

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

2 teaspoons flaxseed meal

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper

2 teaspoons onion powder

3 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons Italian herbs


  1. Combine all ingredients into a small bench-top blender/ or spice grinder and pulse for 10-15 seconds.

  2. Once well combined and milled to a medium crumbled texture. Store in an air-tight container in your pantry.

Makes approximately 1/2 cup

We use this to top pasta when a certain level of cheesiness is required, but it also goes lovely as a topper to breakfast cook-ups, veggie bakes or warm Mediterranean salads.
