Broccoli Divan {Vegan; Grain-Free; Gluten-Free}



Broccoli Divan {Vegan; Grain-Free; Gluten-Free}
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total, Incl Inactive Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
    Cheddar-Inspired Cheeze Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup raw, unsalted cashews
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon tamari
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Other:
  • Vegan “butter”, to grease the gratin dishes
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 375F; lightly grease 2 small (8 oz capacity) gratin dishes with vegan “butter”.
  2. For the cheeze sauce, add the cashews to a blender and pour the boiling water on top; let the nuts soak while you cook the onion for the sauce.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; add the onion and cook until softened and starting to brown in places, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the onion/garlic mixture to the blender along with the cashews and water, along with the lemon juice, tamari, salt, turmeric, and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  5. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring it to a boil; salt the water, then add the broccoli and cook 90 seconds. Drain the broccoli and transfer it to a bowl filled with ice water to immediately stop the cooking process; drain very well.
  6. Add the almond meal and olive oil to a small bowl and use a fork to combine, adding a pinch of black pepper if desired.
  7. Divide the broccoli between the 2 gratin dishes, and pour the cheeze sauce on top. Sprinkle on the almond meal/olive oil mixture and bake until browned in spots, about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
Blender: You absolutely do NOT need a fancy high-powered blender to make this cheeze sauce.
Tamari Substitution: Although both tamari and soy sauces are vegan, I used tamari instead of soy to keep this dish gluten-free. If keeping it gluten-free isn't an issue for you, feel free to use soy sauce instead.
