  • 1 cup raw walnuts (or pine nuts)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder + more to taste


  • Add the walnuts (or pine nuts), nutritional yeast, sea salt and garlic powder to the bowl of a mini food processor. Buzz it a few times until a coarse texture is achieved reminiscent of grated parmesan cheese or wet sand. Taste and add more garlic powder and salt if desired. Store in a jar in the refrigerator.
