Recipe by: Cookie + Kate
From one of our favorite food blogs Cookie + Kate comes this delicious recipe for roasted veggie enchilada casserole. Made with seasonal vegetables, including cauliflower and sweet potatoes, it’s a healthy and hearty alternative to traditional enchiladas. Load up on the cilantro!
2. Chicken Broccoli Rice Vegan Casserole
Recipe by: Nora Cooks
For another plant-based casserole option, try this recipe from Nora Cooks. It only takes about 30 minutes of prep time and includes mostly pantry staples. If you don't have vegan chicken, sub it for tofu. The breadcrumbs are optional, but we think they’re what really makes this casserole stand out.
3. Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Casserole
Recipe by: Erin Lives Whole
For the very best chicken and potato casserole, we’re turning to Erin Lives Whole. Made with heaps of sweet potatoes, broccoli, and chicken, it’s packed with protein and essential nutrients. The buffalo sauce gives it a delicious kick and—paired with a sprinkling of cheese (go easy), it’s a delicious weekend meal. We recommend forgoing the ranch and turkey bacon on this one to par down fat content. Sub for extra veggies instead.
4. Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole With Maple Pecan Topping
Recipe by: Jessica in the Kitchen
For something sweet, this vegan sweet potato casserole is a fall dream. The ingredients are incredibly simple—sweet potato, sugar, vegan milk, oil, vegan butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt—so even beginner chefs can give this one a try without feeling intimidated. Of course there is still sugar, so it’s not the healthiest casserole on the list, but it’s an excellent option if you have a sweet tooth.
