"Cheese-y" Broccoli and Rice (vegan, gf)

This simple vegan recipe provides you with nutrients (from the sauce) and your veggies and grains all in one meals! 


“Cheese” Sauce

  • 1 C cashews
  • 1/2 C nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot flour**
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 C water


  • 2 C wild rice (cooked)
  • 2 C broccoli (chopped into small pieces)*

*for grain free, use 4 cups broccoli and no rice 

**arrowroot flour makes the "cheese" a little stickier consistency. You can omit, but "cheese" may be a little runnier (it will still taste yummy!)



  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Put cooked rice + broccoli (or just broccoli) into baking dish. 
  3. Mix all ingredients for the cheese in a high speed blender, starting with 1/2 tsp salt, and then adding other 1/2 if you want. Pour mixture over broccoli / rice.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Stir, then bake for another 10 minutes.
