Parmesan Sprinkles

Are you looking for a delicious, low-fat alternative to Parmesan? A friend made this recipe for me when I was a guest in her home. It was so good and she was happy to share the recipe. Nutrient dense, this recipe is high in calcium and vitamins B and C.  With no free fats, it is cholesterol free. To serve, sprinkle on vegetables or pasta or pizza. You can also sprinkle on to your favorite crackers, toast, or sourdough.

1 cup toasted sesame seeds, unhulled and toasted (if preferred)

1 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1/4 cup Bakon Yeast (a very flavorful plant-based seasoning)
3 Tablespoons chicken-like seasoning (McKay's or Bill's Best Chicknish)

1 Tbsp onion powder

2 tsp garlic powder

1. Blend sesame seeds in blender for several minutes. Use spatula to help blend evenly.

2. Pour into bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix well and add 1/4 cup lemon juice and knead in with hands or pastry blender until little chunks have a nice, even, small size.

3. Store in refrigerator. Freezes nicely.


  1. Hello La Tea Dah...At first when I read your post, I thought your friend made the BLUE and WHITE dish for you, in ceramics. Ha! Then I realized you meant the recipe. Hope your day goes well. Susan from

  2. Sounds yummy! I'll have to try it. Spode Camilla - one of my all time favorite patterns!!! Do you have the whole set? I only have a couple of cups and saucers.


  3. Sounds great! Don't know if I can get ingredients 2, 3 and 4. :/ So hard to find anything different around here. Have a wonderful new week. Tammy

  4. Yes, this sounds like just the kind of substitution I am looking for. Would I find these ingredients in a health food store?

  5. Fantastic. This sounds delicious and wise!

    Blessings, Debbie
