Yes. Sometimes cheese is allowed. The fat-free and lowfat varieties are 'sometimes' foods. Which means we don't have them every day. But life is short, so we do have them. This combo with shrimp and vegetables is topped with oat bran, which doesn't deliver a crunchy texture, but more tenderness and a grain that this dish is complemented by. We had it 4 days in a row and loved it every day.



  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F / 218 C.

  2. In a large bowl, toss together the shrimp, zucchini, mushrooms, shallot, garlic, paprika, red-pepper flakes, ½ teaspoon herbes de Provence, ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper and 1 tablespoon oil until well combined. Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch sheet pan or shallow baking dish in a single layer.

  3. In the now-empty bowl, toss the oat bran with a pinch of salt, the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and ¼ teaspoon herbes de Provence to combine. Evenly pour the almond milk over the shrimp mixture in the pan, covering all the nooks and crannies. Sprinkle the oat bran mixture over the shrimp, then top first with the mozzarella, followed by the Parmesan.

  4. Bake until it is bubbling and the oat bran and cheese are light golden brown all over, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving with the fresh lemon wedges, which should be squeezed over the gratin just before serving.

    This dish should almost be considered a treat due to its cheese and oat bran, but the veggies keep it wholesome feeling. I ate it a few nights in a row, warming the leftovers in the microwave, and loved it.
