Jill, thank you for another delicious recipe!

Your blue casserole dish is beautiful! Would you mind sharing the details (manufacturer’s name, style number/name, link or where you purchase it, etc)? Thank you!

Hey Jill, is it possible to use 1 cup unsweetened hemp milk in place of the water and cashews in the sauce for the loaded cauliflower? Please and thanks for your time. Cathy in Michigan 🙂

Hmmmm, I think it might be too runny. You could try adding some raw sunflower seeds and blend them into the milk to help thicken it.

I made this recipe today and it was really good. I am not a huge cauliflower fan and trying my best to learn to like mushrooms, I enjoyed it. My husband liked it too. Will make it again.

Can you use frozen vegetables like cauliflower in a recipe like this? I do not always have fresh on hand as it is expensive and risks going off if I do not use it quickly enough (which in a tight budget I cannot afford to risk)
