Vegetarian Parmesan cheese? What is a non vegetarian cheese?

Usually Parmesan cheese isn't vegetarian due to the rennet that is extracted from a calf's stomach. Vegetarian Parmesan is made with microbial rennet. You can use either of those if you don't care.

I found I could cut down all the timings and the result was delicious (even without the cheese which I left out because it needed to be dairy free and hence I swapped the cream for a dairy free version).

This tart is divine, I substituted the cream for half milk, half (lightest) cream cheese. Will definitely be making this again, it was so easy to make too!

This was great and so simple! I didn't have any double cream so but I had mascapone and cream cheese which I loosened with a little milk, I also used a little nutmeg, perfect for lunchboxes! I love the comment below about putting some blue cheese with this, which I will try next time.

Made it today for lunch and it went down a treat! I added extra oregano and nutmeg plus extra Parmesan. Will be making this again.
