There’s plenty to pick from here with a comforting broccoli hash brown bake or a melty and bubbling zucchini cream cheese casserole.
Lots of veggies, plenty of fruits, and loads of flavors. Cozy up with these casseroles and make every day meatless Monday.
1. Blueberry French Toast Casserole
If blueberry cheesecake and French toast got together in some sort of dessert hybrid, I imagine it’d look a lot like this casserole.
Slightly stale bread (to soak up the delicious fruity juices!) is layered along the bottom of a casserole dish and topped with cream cheese, blueberries, eggs, milk, and maple syrup.
Bake it ‘til bubbly and thank me later.
2. Cranberry Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole
This is a fall favorite, but it’s so good, you’ll whip this together for holidays, birthdays, potlucks, and mid-week evenings.
Soft, sliced, sweet potatoes form the base of this decadent dish, which is also loaded with brown sugar pecans and fresh cranberries.
3. Spiced Fruit Bake
This is a fast and easy breakfast casserole, piled high with a bright blend of fresh fruits.
The main ingredient is apple, but it’s joined by pineapple, pears, peaches, and a touch of cinnamon.
Toss in a handful of pomegranate seeds and crunchy toasted pecans for a morning meal that’s both nutritious and delicious.
4. Corn Pudding
Craving something rich, savory, and sweet? Corn pudding is the casserole you never knew you wanted, but totally have to try.
It’s a sweet, custardy dish that’s ready for BBQs, potlucks, or as a satisfying dinner-time side.
5. Mushroom Rice Casserole
Despite being dairy-free, this vegan casserole is surprisingly creamy thanks to the indulgent cashew sauce.
The thick and rich broth is the perfect base for a pile of oniony, garlicky mushrooms.
Top with a crunchy whole-wheat topping and you’ve a holiday-worthy, party-ready casserole.
6. Green Bean Casserole
This list would not be complete without an old favorite – green bean casserole.
The classic side is given a vegan makeover here with beans simmered in an almond milk sauce and served up with mushrooms and crispy onions.
7. Potato Broccoli Casserole
One for the carb-lovers, this buttery potato casserole is a hearty side that works well on its own.
Made with a cheesy (but vegan!) bechamel sauce, this is perfect for kids who won’t eat their greens.
They’ll be too busy enjoying the creamy goodness to notice the broccoli florets hiding inside.
8. Hash Brown Casserole
Hash browns are delicious on their own, but when put into a casserole? It’s almost too good to be true.
If you’re a fan of all things creamy and cheesy, you’ll have to make this casserole.
9. Black Bean Casserole
Full of legumes, rice, and veggies, this black bean casserole is the ultimate one-dish meal.
Every bite is flavorful and wonderfully spicy thanks to a dash of chili powder, a hint of smoked paprika, and a sprinkling of cumin.
Use this one as filling for your next burrito, or just eat it straight from the dish.
Lasagna has saved many cooks from last-minute disasters.
It’s easy yet satisfying, and great for hungry families or demanding dinner parties.
This vegan version is loaded with veggies and keeps things dairy-free by subbing tofu-cashew cheese for the customary ricotta.
11. Broccoli Casserole
Anyone on a plant-based diet will love this creamy casserole, which somehow manages to be decadent yet healthy.
I blame the rich mushroom sauce. Pour it over broccoli, top with a crunchy cracker crumb, and bake.
It’s hard to believe something so satisfying could be so simple.
12. Zucchini Cream Cheese Casserole
I’m not the biggest zucchini fan, but coat it in cream cheese, and I’ll happily chow down on the summer squash.
Especially in this case, where zucchini is mixed with garlic, cheese, and butter then given a savory crunchy top.
13. Cream Cheese Pasta Bake
Fair warning – this cheesy pasta bake is totally addictive, and you’ll want seconds and possibly thirds.
It’s pretty simple, too. Just pile pasta, cream cheese, veggies, and tomatoes into a casserole dish and bake.
14. Brussels Sprouts Gratin
Roasting Brussels sprouts is fine, but folding them into a creamy sauce with shallots and garlic is even better.
Add a breadcrumb topping and bake everything until it smells like heaven and does that amazing bubbling thing.
15. Broccoli Hash Brown Bake
If you love hash browns but hate the grease that usually comes with this fried treat, you’ll love this casserole.
Freshly grated potatoes are coated with a homemade vegan cheese sauce and baked with broccoli for a healthy, hearty side.
16. Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole
This is a make-ahead casserole for times when you want dinner prepped and ready to go.
Squash, garlic, and parsley meets chopped kale and (in a surprise vegan twist) a pepita-almond parmesan.
Make it, store it, then bake to perfection when dinner rolls around.
17. Chili Cornbread Casserole
This truly is a meal in a dish with a layer of vegan chili, topped with a layer of crumbly cornbread.
The bread topping soaks up all those amazing spicy flavors while the chili bubbles happily away below.
This is the type of casserole that’s good for the body and soul.
18. Potato Mushroom Bake
On cool nights and rainy evenings, there’s no better place to be than sitting in front of a steaming casserole.
It’s particularly enjoyable when it’s this delightful mix of soft, buttery potatoes and creamy mushrooms.
19. Cauliflower Casserole
Cauliflowers get a lot of love from the vegan/vegetarian crowd, and it’s easy to see why with this recipe.
Soft cauliflower is the perfect vehicle for a rich, creamy sauce and crunchy bread topping in this kid-friendly casserole.
20. Vegetarian Tamale Pie
Super filling and super tasty, tamale pie is my go-to when feeding a crowd.
This veggie version sounds like a lighter, healthier alternative to the traditional meat pie, without sacrificing the flavor.
This is a great one for meal preppers too. If you have any leftovers, just freeze them in individual portions for a grab n’ go meal.
