This is good-for-you Greek zucchini gratin is a nice alternative to heavier Parmesan dishes and is made plant-based and gluten-free prepared with vegan feta and cauliflower-based crumbs.

Vegan Greek Zucchini Gratin

The secret to the crispy topping on this casserole is Cauli Crunch® bread-free crumbs, which are my go-to pantry staple right now. These cauliflower-based crumbs (which happen to be gluten-free and vegan) create a crispy, savory topping for this casserole. It might just become your favorite weeknight side dish!

Since this is a saucy dish, cook some whole grains to serve it over — rice, quinoa, or a combination of the two.
