cashew nuts
1 tbsp

coconut oil
1 pinch

1 tbsp

nutritional yeast

1/2 cup

1 cup

2 servings

salt and pepper
2 handfuls

2 pints

  1. For the 'parmesan cheese', place the cashew nuts into a blender and process for few seconds to get a flour-like consistency.

  2. Mix together with the nutritional yeast and set aside.In a medium sized pan heat the oil and add finely chopped onions. Fry for 20 seconds, then add the quinoa and nutmeg, mix thoroughly to cover entirely with oil and pour in half of the veggie stock.Stir frequently and once the liquid has been absorbed, add the remaining half of the stock along with the frozen peas. It should take about half an hour.Once done, take off the heat, mix in the 'parmesan cheese', fresh spinach and season with pepper and salt to taste.

  3. Serve immediately with chopped spinach scattered over the top

Wine Pairing :

  • chianti
  • trebbiano
  • verdicchio

Chianti, Trebbiano, and Verdicchio are my top picks for Italian. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes.
