Notes

1. Soaking the cashews is an important step as it softens them and makes your sauce creamier. If you’re short on time, you can soak them in hot water for an hour.
2. When roasting the vegetables, make sure they are spread out evenly on the baking sheet. Overlapping can cause them to steam instead of roast, preventing that delicious caramelization.
3. Feel free to customize this recipe with your favorite vegetables or herbs. Sweet potatoes, carrots, or parsnips would also work well, and herbs like rosemary or thyme can add an extra depth of flavor.
4. This dish is best served hot, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.
5. Pair this casserole with a fresh salad or some crusty bread for a complete meal. Enjoy!
