Plus, they’re so good, nobody will even know they’re vegan!

From decadent brunch to savory dinner, there’s a vegan casserole on this list for every meal. 

1. “Chicken” and Rice Casserole

How is it possible to make a chicken casserole vegan? 

It’s easy. Use a vegan meat substitute that has a similar texture and tastes just like chicken!

Then toss it in a casserole with broccoli, rice, and non-dairy cheese for a hearty meal.

2. Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole  

Thanksgiving or not, vegan sweet potato casserole is a delightful dish to add to a dinner spread. 

The mashed sweet potatoes get a sprinkle of brown sugar and non-dairy butter for a rich complexity. 

As a bonus, the creamy mash is topped with a crunchy cinnamon and sugar pecan topping.

I think this would also make a great dessert served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

3. Green Bean Casserole 

It’s not hard to turn this classic casserole into a vegan treat.

You’ll replace the dairy components with plain almond milk and non-dairy butter.

Then, load up the casserole with crisp green beans, chopped mushrooms, and crunchy fried onions.

This is the perfect casserole to bust out for holidays or cold winter nights.

4. Vegan Breakfast Casserole 

This hearty breakfast comes with the works!

Layer hash browns on the bottom of the pan for structural support.

Then, sprinkle a heaping of fresh veggies, bacon, eggs, and cheese on top. All vegan of course.

The trick to the egg mixture is using silken tofu and some nutritional yeast for flavoring.

If you don’t have time to make your own you can use store-bought vegan eggs instead.

5. French Toast Casserole 

You’ll want to throw a vegan brunch in honor of this recipe.

Chunks of crusty bread soak up cinnamon-infused coconut milk to create a sensationally sweet, custardy bake. 

You can drizzle on the frosting for a sweeter take. I like mine the old-fashioned way with a touch of some quality maple syrup.

6. Mexican Tater Tot Casserole 

This genius casserole takes your favorite childhood spud and gives it a Mexican spin. 

The bottom of the dish has a comforting enchilada-style mixture. Meanwhile, the top features crispy tater tots.

I highly recommend not skimping on the fixing for this one. I say make it your own with some avocado, salsa, cilantro, lime, or whatever you like.

7. Vegan Enchilada Casserole 

Speaking of enchiladas, you’ll have to try this casserole!

It piles high a heaping of corn tortillas, vegan cheese, and veggies. Then smothers everything in a flawlessly seasoned enchilada sauce.

Handling corn tortillas can be tricky. Make them more pliable to work with by slightly warming or dipping them in enchilada sauce.

8. Vegan Mac and Cheese 

It’s hard to beat this cheesy favorite!

If you’ve never made vegan cheese, don’t worry because it’s super easy.

Blend nutritional yeast, lemon, soaked cashews, white miso, cornstarch, and spice. Then drench your pasta and bake until golden brown.

For more crunch, toss some panko breadcrumbs on top.

9. Creamy Vegan Gnocchi

Dreary days make me crave this cozy, comforting casserole. 

Tender gnocchi is swimming in a creamy white wine sauce with a handful of kale.

This may not be the most healthy vegan dish, but it is dairy-free and too good to pass up.

10. Shepherd’s Pie 

Who knew lentils could be this good in a shepherd’s pie? 

This casserole has a rich, hearty plant-based filling that is brimming with savory satisfaction. 

The lentils take on a meaty flavor you would never guess was vegan. Plus, this satiating filling gets smothered in fluffy mashed potatoes!

11. Vegan Baked Ziti 

This baked ziti is all about the sauce. Specifically, a sausage tomato and cheese sauce.

Seitan sausage gives canned tomatoes a meaty oomph. While the creamy cashew mozzarella sauce seals the deal.

I highly recommend using the largest casserole dish you have. This hefty casserole is a feast!

12. Vegan Lasagna 

As a cheese lover, I can attest this vegan lasagna will hit the spot. The tofu cashew ricotta is surprisingly creamy and cheesy. 

But wait, there’s more to this lasagna than meets the eye because it’s packed with protein! 

Red lentils and marinara come together in a harmonious rich, hearty sauce.

This is Italian comfort food at its finest!

13. Hash Brown Casserole 

A carb-a-licious cheesy casserole? Sign me up!

First, shred potatoes and fry them until golden brown perfection, then load on the cheese.

This recipe calls for a sprinkle of vegan cheese and a yummy vegan cheese sauce.

While there are many brands to choose from, Violife is the best for this recipe.

14. Creamy Lentil Bake 

Lentil bake is a similar concept to vegan shepherd’s pie except with a cheesy, umami take.

Thyme, tahini, and miso pack the lentils full of flavor while caramelized veggies enhance the filling.

All that savory goodness gets a topping of cashew cream sauce.

Bake this casserole until the sauce forms a thick, cheese-like crust.

15. Cheesy Vegan Cauliflower Casserole 

Move over broccoli because this brassica dish is all about cauliflower. 

There’s something about cauliflower and cheese that I can’t resist. Make it a cashew cheese sauce and throw in a breadcrumb topping and that’s dinner! 

Keep in mind you’ll need to let the cashews soak before making the sauce. This is what helps break them down to be oh-so-creamy.

16. Vegan Cornbread Casserole

Looking for a homey casserole? Try this Mexican and southern comfort food mashup. 

It takes a cornbread mixture and doctors it with Mexican fillings like jalapenos, corn, and cilantro. Oh, and don’t forget the spices!

For some added protein, sprinkle some vegan cheese on top, or add some black beans to the filling.

17. Vegan Taco Casserole

Surprise your friends on taco Tuesday with this masterpiece!

It takes taco salad fixings like black beans, bell peppers, jalapenos, and tortillas, then bakes it all into one dish. 

You can serve it any way you like, but a dollop of vegan sour cream would taste nice. 

This 30-minute meal would also be a great weeknight dinner. 

18. Butternut Squash Casserole 

Who said hearty winter dishes couldn’t be healthy? This gluten-free dish is bursting with colorful plant-based ingredients.

Since butternut squash takes longer to cook than the other ingredients, you’ll want to roast it first. In the meantime, you can cook the quinoa.

Once that’s done, add everything to your casserole dish and bake.

19. Creamy Wild Rice Mushroom Casserole

This winter casserole is my jam! I love the combo of wild rice and mushrooms, which tastes even better in casserole form.

For the creamy base, use arrowroot for thickening. It’s like corn starch, but more nutritious. 

Tamari also gives this dish an extra boost of umami which is the ideal match for a chilly day.

20. Veggie Curry Casserole

As if vegan curry wasn’t already good enough, this recipe turns it into an entree fit to feed the family. 

This Indian curry is perfect for spicing up a boring dinner routine.

The creamy coconut sauce is an explosion of spice that will get everyone to eat their veggies tonight. 

You can serve this with a side of white or brown rice. Some warm flatbread would also be a nice way to soak up all the tantalizing spice. 

21. Vegan Potato Casserole 

You can never have too many potato casseroles in my opinion! 

What sets this one apart from the rest is the nutty crunchy topping made with macadamia nuts. It’s super tasty and gluten-free!

This topping is the perfect match for the roasted veggie filling and oil-free tahini sauce. 

22. Eggplant Parmesan Potato Casserole 

This casserole has potluck written all over it. 

It takes all the addictive flavors of eggplant parmesan and layers them with potato slices for a filling meal. 

The creamy white sauce and cashew parmesan are the scrumptious vegan twist nobody will see coming. 

23. Pumpkin Casserole 

Sweet potato casseroles are wonderful, but when I’m in the mood for savory I opt for this recipe instead. 

This recipe bakes cubes of pumpkin until fork tender with shallots, cannellini beans, and coconut milk.

It also throws in some dried herbs and nutmeg for some added autumn flair. 

24. Vegan Scalloped Potatoes 

Winter casserole or summer casserole, any time of year is a good time to indulge in this recipe.

To make this version vegan, swap out all the dairy with your favorite vegan butter and non-dairy milk. Then, use veggie broth instead of chicken broth. 

I recommend busting out the mandolin to get your potatoes sliced super thin.

25. Vegan Pasta Bake 

Don’t just go vegetarian with your casserole, go vegan with this amazing bake!

The penne pasta soaks up all the yumminess of the tangy tomato and creamy white sauce.

While you can add some more veggies to the filing, don’t skimp on the cheese! Vegan mozzarella and cheddar are a winning combo for this bake.

This casserole will last for a few days in the fridge. So make a big batch and enjoy leftovers.
