You can cook the zucchini slices in the oven, but I prefer to cook them in a skillet with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil or in a grill pan. You don’t have to use oil if you don’t want to. If you don’t like zucchini you can also use other veggies.

Pesto is a delicious Italian sauce, it’s one of my favorite sauces and there’s another recipe in the blog using homemade vegan pesto, this vegan pesto bruschetta, another quick and easy appetizer recipe. On this occasion I’ve used spinach instead of basil and walnuts instead of pine nuts. This version is cheaper, but it’s delicious too.

The vegan Parmesan tastes pretty similar to traditional and it has the same texture as the grated Parmesan. If you prefer a gluten-free version, you should use nutritional yeast, if you can eat gluten, you can use brewer’s yeast too.

To make the Parmesan cheese I’ve used raw and unsalted cashews, but you can also use roasted salted cashews. You’ll probably need to add less salt, but the cheese will be delicious too.
