Gluten-Free Plant-Based Cauliflower Gratin
Potato gratin is delicious, but not exactly the most figure friendly dish out there. If you’re craving that kind of comfort food but you’ve already been indulging like crazy this holiday season and want to incorporate a bit more veggies and healthier alternatives, this Plant-Based Cauliflower Gratin is a great choice. You can serve this for any dinner – from a weeknight dinner with the family to a holiday feast.
This dish is made dairy-free and plant-based thanks to the use of Loca Plant-Based Potato Queso. This dairy-free “cheese” sauce is delicious as a dip with chips or in recipes. It’s become a favorite in my house and in the Simply Gluten Free office!
