Vegan Cheesy Cauliflower Potatoes

cheesy cauliflower potatoes? YES! you know i love me a goooood cheese sauce and this one is no exception. for those who don’t want a cashew sauce base, cauliflower is a great alternative. cauliflower is pretty plain but if you pair it with the right ingredients, no flavor is lost!

the sauce is easy to make in a food processor and there’s even a delicious pecan parm for the top! you won’t even miss dairy because this is so rich yet incredibly healthy at the same time.

that golden brown pecan parm crust is just glorious! tons of requests lately for vegan thanksgiving side dishes, so i had to make sure i delivered the vegan side dish goods. Vegan Cheesy Cauliflower Potatoes will not disappoint AND it’s and easy dish to make, which is the best right?

if it’s your first vegan thanksgiving, you might be feeling a little bit nervous about bringing your own dish or two! don’t worry at all because vegan food is so dang good and if you bring something like this, it’s a total crowd pleaser.

alright yay that i posted this! the holiday is getting closer and closer, so i want to share as many dishes as possible. have a great rest of the day!
