Broccoli Mushroom Rotini Casserole [Vegan]

I like to use rotini pasta because the spirals hold onto the sauce and really grab it, plus it has a nice texture to it too. I recommend following these directions, but if you don’t have a food processor, you can chop the veggies into very very small pieces instead so they don’t overwhelm the pasta. Also make sure not to use too much broccoli or you will end up with a more pungent pasta creation (as broccoli contains sulfur, it can be strong smelling).

So give this healthy pasta bake a try and let me know what you think!

Vegan Broccoli Mushroom Rotini Casserole

This Recipe is :

High Carb Vegan Vegan




  • 1 cup/150 grams of broccoli
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 3 large cloves of garlic
  • 16 oz. whole wheat rotini, elbows or spirals
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • Paprika to garnish
  • White pepper to garnish
  • Herbamare or salt to garnish

Cheezy Sauce

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 5 tsp Genmai brown rice miso paste
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt if desired. Cook rotini or spirals for about 6 minutes just until al dente. (Do not overcook)
  3. Pulse, broccoli, mushrooms, onions and garlic separately in a food processor (unless you have a very large one) until broken into tiny pieces. Add to a large wok or sauté pan and cook for 7 minutes until soft. Add a little water or vegetable broth as necessary to cook.
  4. Blend cheezy sauce ingredients in a blender and taste test. Adjust seasonings if desired with more salt and pepper or smoked paprika.
  5. Drain rotini and add to sauté pan and pour sauce over (or combine in a large pot if you don’t have a lot of room). Toss to coat.
  6. Pour into a large casserole pan. Top with panko breadcrumbs and smoked paprika.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy!


This recipe is best served fresh, but if you need to reheat it, rebake it or else the panko bread crumbs will be mushy.

I have enjoyed many of r vegan recipes but the vegan broccoli mushroom rotini casserole wasn\'t just bad, it was awful. This is also my husband\'s opinion.
