  • 2 cups Butternut Squash (peeled, seeded and cubed)

  • 1 Yellow Onion (medium, diced)

  • 2 Garlic (cloves, minced)

  • 1/2 cup Water

  • 1 head Cauliflower (medium, chopped into florets)

  • ​4 cups Broccoli (chopped into florets)

  • ​1/2 cup Cashews

  • 1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast

  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

  • ​1/4 tsp Paprika


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a small saucepan, combine the butternut squash, onion, garlic and water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat for about 5 minutes or until everything is soft. Remove from heat when done.

  • While the squash is cooking, place cauliflower and broccoli in a steamer. Steam for 3 minutes or until tender.

  • To make the “cheese” sauce, add the cashews, nutritional yeast, salt and paprika to your blender. Pour in the softened butternut squash, onion, garlic and water. Blend on high for about 1 minute or until smooth. (Note: If you do not have a high powered blender, you might need to add a little extra water to get it going. Add 1 tbsp at a time.)

  • Place the steamed cauliflower and broccoli into a baking dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the veggies and stir gently to mix.

  • Bake for 40 minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
