From Veganomicon - The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. Many vegetarians who decide to take the leap to VEGANISM, find it hardest to give up cheese. While I feel that most the FAKE cheese products out there are trying to mimic something that they just CAN'T, this version of grated parmesan comes pretty darn close to that nutty, salty topping that grated parmesan or other hard cheeses gives to a dish of pasta! This recipe is great too, because you can make it in seconds right in you kitchen instead of shelling out 3 times as much for the pre-made vegan grated cheese they sell in the store. The original recipe calls for 1/8 tsp salt, I use closer to 1/4. Use your taste.
