#GLUTENFREE + #SUGARFREE + #PALEO + #WHOLE30 + #VEGAN
The most addicting casserole you will ever eat! Great as a meal or as a side dish!
This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite vegan cookbooks #ohsheglows. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to eat a more vegan diet, it is a great starting point. The recipes are easy + taste delicious! This is one of my all time favorite ways to cook #butternutsquash! Trust me on this one, your going to want to try making this. This dish makes a lovely side dish for a special occasion, so if your needing a dish to bring to a party, this is it! Everyone will be super impressed + there isn't many ingredients in it!
If your in a time crunch just buy the squash pre-chopped to save yourself some time!
Feel free to add as many vegetables as you want to this as well! It's also a vegan dish, but adding a bit of #parmesan if your not vegan really adds such good flavor!
