Tips for making Veggie Casserole with cashew

Easy-to-make Veggie Casserole with cashew - Low calorie recipe

When making a vegetable casserole, it’s important to use a non-dairy broth for the casserole. You can substitute vegetable broth with chicken or turkey broth if you prefer. This recipe uses cashew cream, which is a dairy-free alternative to heavy cream. After soaking in a bowl of hot broth for about 20 minutes, cashews soften and produce a luxurious, milk-like consistency when blended.

To make a vegetarian version, you can use whole, fresh green beans instead of the canned ones. If you don’t have fresh green beans, you can also use frozen or canned cauliflower. Toss them with olive oil and garlic powder and cook until they are soft. If you have any leftover mushrooms, you can use any type you like. Add the cashews and mushrooms to the pot. Once the mixture has boiled, remove it from the heat and let the mushrooms and onions finish cooking.

To make the vegan cheese sauce, combine soy milk and vegetable broth and blend until smooth. You can add more if you like. When the sauce is thick, layer the cauliflower florets in the casserole dish. Bake it for about 10 minutes until the breadcrumbs are a light golden brown. Alternatively, you can sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes on top to serve. The casserole will be delicious when served hot or cold.

The cashew cream sauce should be creamy and thick. The sauce will continue to thicken in the oven. Prepare the vegetables. Slice the onions, garlic, mushrooms, and green beans. Saute them in the onion and olive oil and set aside to cool. Once the veggies are done, pour the cashew cream over them. Cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes. After that, add the crispy onions on top of the casserole.
