Cashew Cauliflower and Leek Gratin

Original Recipe: Taste of Home.


  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 large leek (white portion only), halved lengthwise, washed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups cashew milk
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped cashews, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place cauliflower florets and leek slices in a parchment paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper; toss to mix. Roast 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  2. Meanwhile, process cashew milk, white wine, cashew butter and garlic in a blender until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Transfer roasted cauliflower and leeks to a greased 11×7-in. baking dish; stir in cashew sauce. Return to oven; bake until heated through, 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle with cashews and chives.
