Casseroles are really just a big pan of deliciousness. You can toss a variety of ingredients in, season and combine them however you please, and pop it in the oven and boom – there’s dinner! Convenient, delicious, and enough to feed the family. Start with this Mashed Potato Casserole With Broccoli and Cauliflower Gravy by Jennifer Harmon, and then try Paris Marash‘s Creamy Buffalo Cauliflower Casserole for two creamy and comforting meals. This Sweet Potato ‘Rice’ Casserole by Alissandra Maffucci provides a creative twist on a classic ingredient. Let your tastebuds travel the globe with a Huevos Rancheros Casserole by Diane Smith and this Potatoes Oreganata: Greek Hasselback Potato Casserole by Alexandra V Jones!

Pasta is delicious any way you choose to eat it, but it’s particularly excellent hot from the oven, with warm sauce and vegan cheese. You’ll want to immediately dig into this Cannelloni With Quinoa Mushroom Stuffing by Florian Nouh, and it’ll be hard to wait for these Mushroom Stuffed Shells from Lenia Patsi to cool down! Melissa Tedesco‘s Creamy Cauliflower Penne Bake will feel like a luxurious treat, and this Veggie Lasagna With Eggplant and Cashew Cheese from Lei-Lani Adams is an amazing plant-based take on a classic.
3. Shepherd’s Pie and Pot Pie

Shepherd’s pie and pot pies are both well-loved classic dinners and go-to entrees on chilly nights. While both are typically not vegan, we’ve got some incredible plant-based options for you to whip up this fall! Get started with this delicious Shepherd’s Pie by Molly Patrick for a more traditional take, and if you want to change up the style, try a Sweet Potato and Sage Lentil Shepherd’s Pie by Kristen Genton! A combo between these two savory pies can be found with this Shepherd’s Pot Pie by Melanie Sorrentino, but if just pot pie is more your style, try this Vegetable Pot Pie With Dill-Mustard Sauce by Deena Mehta or a Chickpea Pot Pie by Dawn Hutchins.
