Much more economical than the store-bought version
Serves 4 to 8
1 cup raw almonds or cashews
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning (e.g., Benson's Table Tasty)
In a food processor fitted with the "S" blade or in a blender, combine all ingredients until a powdery texture is achieved. If you like it more chunky, process less.
Tips/variations: You can also use store-bought almond flour in place of the almonds. This is good on lasagna, air-popped popcorn, potatoes, steamed veggies, chili and soups.
All figures are per serving (assumes 8 servings).
