Parmesan cheese lends a delicious touch to pasta dishes, but when you think about it, it’s the texture and extra bit of saltiness that makes it so delicious. Luckily, it’s ridiculously easy to recreate the delicious texture and taste while on a gluten-free and vegan diet, thanks to what many call “Poor Man’s Parmesan,” or, Pangritata.

Pangritata is made with breadcrumbs, which are browned with a little salt and other herbs as desired. Here is a basic Pangritata recipe from which you can build to suit your taste.

Gluten Free and Vegan Parmesan, or Pangritata

Ingredients:

1 cup of gluten-free and vegan breadcrumbs, like Manna Organics breadcrumbs.
1 tablespoon of salt, or more to taste
1/2 tablespoon dried garlic
A few tablespoons of Olive Oil

The best thing about Poor Man’s Parmesan is that it can be used to add texture and flavor to so many different dishes like pasta, salad, soup, and sandwiches. We even like sprinkling it on tomatoes from our garden and eating them just like that as a snack.
