I am not only vegetarian, I also try to stay away from unprocessed food, even the organic kind when I can. Just about everything I will make from scratch, including seitan, which tastes so much better than the stuff you get in a grocery store! In this recipe I use Parmesan cheese. If you are vegan, use the same amount of nutritional yeast in its place. You can also make your own garbanzo flour by grinding dry garbanzo beans in a blender. That's all there is to it!
