Author Notes: From Julie Piatt and Rich Roll's
The Plantpower Way: Italia: "Making vegan Parmesan is so easy in this recipe—you just need four ingredients. If you skip soaking the nuts, your cheese will have a firmer texture. It's brilliant and useful, as one can prepare it just as the pasta water is boiling."

Makes: 1 cup
Prep time: 5 min
