Servings 5 servings


  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 6 cups cauliflower florets from 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened original cashewmilk
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup herb breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Gouda cheese


  • Heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil in a large oven-safe skillet with a lid attachment over medium-high. Add cauliflower; cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it begins to pick up color. Season with salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium.
  • Combine cashewmilk and mustard in a large glass measuring cup. Pour into skillet, cover, and simmer for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is tender and most of the cashewmilk is absorbed.
  • Preheat broiler to HIGH. Combine remaining 2 Tbsp. oil, breadcrumbs, and Gouda in a bowl; mix well. Scatter mixture over cauliflower and transfer to oven. Broil for 2 minutes, or until crust is golden and toasted.
