Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celsius.
  • Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray or oil. Arrange the sliced yellow squash in the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle half the cheddar cheese over the squash and mix it a bit.
  • Place the cashews, oregano, nutritional yeast, onion flakes or powder, salt and ground black pepper in a blender bowl with 1 cup water. Blend into a very smooth paste.
  • Pour the cashew paste over the yellow squash in the baking dish, coating the veggies evenly.
  • In a small bowl mix the almond flour, remaining half of the cheddar cheese, melted butter, salt and ground black pepper. Sprinkle over the yellow squash in the baking dish.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven and bake 35 minutes. Turn on the broiler for the last couple of minutes so the topping turns golden-brown.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
