Parma! Vegan Parmesan Cheese Replacement

Mike Adams of the Natural News raved about Parma! Vegan Parmesan, a non-dairy vegan parmesan cheese substitute.

It's sold in a shaker, just like conventional parmesan cheese, but it's made from plants, not dairy. Just pure, simple, all natural ingredients with no MSG or yeast extract.

The combination is shockingly similar to real parmesan cheese. Really, the taste will absolutely fool you. And here's a secret recipe I discovered that functions as a kind of "cheese replacement" in your cooking:

Just take several heaping spoonfuls of regular hummus (made from chickpeas), then sprinkle on a generous serving of this Parma! product. Mix it up with a fork and slather it on top of a corn tortilla covered with organic quinoa and spicy black beans. Pour some fresh salsa on top and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. You've got "cheese" tortillas!

Parma! comes in Original and Chipotle Cayenne flavors. You can find out more about the products and locations you can purchase it at the Eat in the Raw website.

I've been reading and hearing about quinoa for years, but never actually tasted it until last week. I saw a bag of organic quinoa at the grocery store and bought it on a whim. I like couscous, so I figured I would like this, too. I like it even more!
