Parmesan Wafers- Quick and Simple

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Jubes

A thin wafer made just from finely grated parmesan cheese baked in the oven. Wonderful as an elegant topper for your salads or entrees. As a bonus they are gluten free. Great to use instead of croutons. I have seen these in a magazine jazzed up with chilli flakes and very finely chopped walnuts- I haven't tried them this way yet

These can also be done on the stovetop in a non-stick skillet if you're just making a few. Add a little fresh ground black pepper. You can also take the warm wafer and place it over a coffiee cup or bowl to shape into an edible salad bowl. Easy, easy, easy, and elegant.
