I hope you are all familiar with casseroles by now – those delicious comfort meals that are so incredibly easy to make! I usually make casseroles when I know I have a busy week ahead or I just don’t want to cook something new every day. Or when it’s cold outside and I need something to warm me up inside and make me feel better! That’s when I go and pick some veggies from the fridge or freezer, combine them with some vegan sauce, nutritional yeast or even breadcrumbs and voilà – you’ll have one amazing vegan casserole that will feed two people for three days in no time!
I know that casseroles aren’t known for their aspect, but for their utility and deliciousness. Vegan casserole recipes are all about comfort – you only need your favorite veggies and a baking pan! One of the best things about them is that you can basically use and experiment with anything you have in your kitchen and you’ll end up with a tasty result that will make everyone happy! Oh, and did I mention that casseroles are also super easy to warm up? What more could you ask for?!
I strongly recommend them to anyone that needs to cook simple but hearty meals for their family or they just don’t have time to come up with new recipes daily. Vegan casseroles are absolutely perfect for meal prep!
And if you’re one of those people that think cheese is the only thing that makes a casserole tasty – I urge you to go to the kitchen and try a vegan casserole recipe! I promise you that you will fall in love with the flavors and textures! Plus – it’s always fun to experiment with homemade vegan cheese recipes and other vegan sauces!
