Vegan Savory Topping

Craving a vegan friendly topping for your savory dishes, instead of Parmesan cheese?


Vegan Savory Topping


  • ½ cup raw sesame seeds
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast flakes (or ¼ cup powdered)
  • ½ tsp kosher or sea salt

Heat a dry skillet over medium heat (preferably not non-stick), add in the sesame seeds and toast, shaking often for 4 to 5 minutes. Take off the heat and spread out onto a large dinner plate to cool down.
Add everything to a large food chopper or food processor and process until ground down a bit – you can grind it fine or leave it chunky like I prefer. For a really fine texture, finish it in a clean coffee/spice grinder.
Makes about 1 cup.
