Add all of the cashew parm ingredients to a blender or food processor. Pulse until you have a fine crumbly meal. Set aside for your gratin.

In a medium sized cast iron or oven safe skillet, add 1 TBSP Olive oil over med-low heat. Add your diced onion and cook 5-10min until soft.

Season with a pinch Sea salt & black pepper, set aside.
4
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Meanwhile, add your squash rounds and prepare Snap Peas to a large mixing bowl. Add 2 TBSP Olive oil, 1/2 tsp Salt, a pinch of black pepper…
6
1/2 tsp Garlic powder, and 1/4 cup Cashew Parm and toss gently in the bowl to fully coat
7
Add onions to the bottom of the skillet. Then add your squash, layering green/yellow if you have both colors. Start in the outside and work your way in

Once you’ve used all of your squash, add the Snap Peas to the top, tucked in so they follow the circular motion

Evenly top with the remaining 3/4 cup Cashew Parm, and bake at 400 for 30min. If the top isn’t toasty enough, broil 1-2min, but watch closely so it doesn’t burn

Let cool for a few minutes in the pan before serving this excellent side dish, or make it a light lunch by adding your choice of protein. Enjoy every bite!
