Parmesan Cheese Baskets

This is for cheese fans and is a great low carb/gluten free way to serve a salad! Using Parmesan that is cooked in a pan, I made a cheesy basket in which you could put a tasty salad inside, then eat the bowl!     I had this for lunch today and in the bowl put cherry tomatoes, baby mozzarellas, olives, salad leaves and a handful of basil leaves.  As well as looking bright and colourful it was tasty and delicious.

You don’t have to make a bowl with this, you could cook the Parmesan and then leave it to cool.  Break off pieces to put over salad or soup.  Or just nibble on it as a snack. Cheesy goodness!


Grated Parmesan


  • Heat a frying pan on a low to medium heat.
  • Scatter the Parmesan all over the frying pan and covering it in a thin layer.

  • Cook for 2-3 mins on one side, then flip over to cook the other side.

  • Remove from pan and place on an upside down bowl.  Press around the bowl and leave to cool.

  • Remove the Parmesan basket and fill with filling of your choice.

  • Eat and enjoy!
