Healthy Vegan Casseroles

When it comes to easy plant based recipes, casseroles are a must. While some of the recipes you see below might not follow the traditional idea of what a casserole is, I like to think of casseroles as really anything that's baked in a casserole dish. So here you'll see a healthy vegan quinoa casserole, as well as enchiladas!

Pasta is one of my favorite things to make for dinner when I'm short on time. Not only is pasta filling and comforting, but it's also easy to jazz up with different flavors. We've got everything from a vegan mushroom stroganoff to a healthy twist on alfredo and even a classic cacio e pepe pasta. There's no way that pasta wasn't going to make our list of easy plant based recipes!
