Fennel & Mushroom Au Gratin (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Updated on December 13, 2012

A low fat version of an Italian Classic

This traditional Italian Christmas dish will satisfy your savory palate and still leave you enough room for sweet cravings without breaking the calorie bank. The main makeover with this meal are the ingredients used to make the bechamel sauce. I used a high protein chick pea flour and nutritional yeast to thicken it instead of white flour and cheeses. There is still some fat from the truffle oil and the overall impact is still low on calories and high on flavor! This dish is the gift that keeps on giving all year long.....
