Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Place all casserole ingredients (veggies and tuna) in large casserole dish or 9×13 baking dish. Gently mix to combine.
Add water, cashews, garlic, nutritional yeast, oil, coconut flour, and seasonings to blender. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Add egg and blend for another 15-30 seconds. Pour sauce mixture over veggies/tuna and mix gently until completely combined and sauce is evenly distributed throughout veggies/tuna. Gently pat down top of mixture with back of spatula until the surface is level.
Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for 50 minutes, covered. After 50 minutes, remove foil, and return to oven to bake (uncovered) for another 10 minutes.

    Cashews are considered legumes, right? Therefore, no Paleo. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    Cashews are seeds, not legumes.

    Incorrect. The only nuts that count as legumes are peanuts.

    What is the purpose of the nutritional yeast? I’m just curious as to whether or not I really need to add it to my shopping list for this recipe…?
