This is more of a condiment recipe, but it is very versatile in application and incredibly simple to make.  Use it anywhere or in any recipe calling for Parmesan Cheese.

1/2 cup raw nuts or seeds - I prefer the flavor of raw pine nuts
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flake - if you can only find powder, then use 1/4 cup
1/2 tsp garlic powder
a pinch of sea salt

Put all ingredients in food processor and pulse until nuts are the texture of sand.  If you have a high powered blender (like a Vita-mix) this takes about 20 seconds to make.  Make sure you do not over grind, or you will get a nut/seed butter.  

This is technically a raw transition food - some raw foodists treat nutritional yeast as a raw food, and others do not.  It is up to you but right now it is part of my raw diet and is also enjoyed by my husband and son who are not on a raw diet.

We use this to top pizza, pasta, baked potatoes, popcorn, raw veggies, etc.
