In a skillet, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini and yellow squash slices. Sauté for 1 minute. Add almond milk, salt, ground black pepper, and nutmeg. Simmer for 5 minutes until almond milk has thickened. In a separate bowl, stir together gruyere, thyme, rosemary, and breadcrumbs.
