baked hemp parmesan

Baked parmesan with hemp seeds in a black bowl with a spoon.

Baked hemp parmesan indulges you with salty, tangy, umami flavors with every spoonful of this delectable 5-ingredient plant-based cheese sensation. 


  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 4 tsp. miso paste
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 3250 F (1600 C)
  2. In a shallow baking dish, mix the miso paste, lemon juice, oregano, and salt.
  3. Mix in the hemp seeds and spread the mixture across the bottom of the dish.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes and then toss the mixture, breaking up any clumps that form. Bake for another 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  5. Remove your parmesan from the baking dish and toss it a bit to separate it. It will dry and get a bit firmer as it cools.  
  6. Stove in an airtight container in the fridge. It will last several months (I’m serious).


  • Because they have a mellow flavor, hemp seeds make the best parmesan (in our opinion). If you substitute sesame seeds or cashews pieces, the flavor will be nuttier.
  • Be sure to check the hemp parmesan often. Toss it as many times as you like. Ovens can be fickle and fussy, so adjust as you see fit.
  • Hemp seeds are non-psychoactive, so if you are looking for a consumable with 'properties, these aren't them. Any high you get is just from the flavor and joy of eating.
