    Hi, this recipe sounds great, and I want to try it, but my son is allergic to tree nuts, are the cashews substitutable (is that a word?) with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, or would that not work? Thanks!

      Tina Pascoe – In general, nuts and seeds are all substitutable for each other :)

    Does the nutritional yeast add taste, texture, or flavor to this recipe? I have everything to make it except the yeast and so I was just wondering. Thanks!

      Michael – It adds that cheesy sort of funky umami flavor. I’m sure it’ll still be good without it :)

    Try using Cauliflower

  4. Steamed, Cauliflower works well with coconut milk, minced garlic and garlic powder, pepper and 2 cups (or less) vegan mozzarella if you allow it (for a treat meal). Mix all in food processor and bake in an 8×8 greased dish until bubbling. I believe 375 for about 20-25 minutes. I add diced cooked chicken, green onions (and a dash of parmesan cheese for the kid’s plates). Or omit chicken and add pepperoni as a pizza casserole. Again, these are treat meals in our house not an everyday dinner since I am going slightly outside the parameters.
