50 Vegetarian Casserole Recipes (1)
Working on this post has forced me to ask myself a lot of tough questions.

What, exactly, is a casserole? Are enchiladas casseroles? What about lasagnas? Is that a casserole or a pasta? Are pot pies a casserole, or is the fact that they're usually baked in a circular dish make them not casseroles?

Eventually, I just decided that if it's made in a dish and baked in an oven, it's a casserole. That works, right?

Casseroles are among my favorite foods to eat (and least favorite foods to photograph, but that's neither here nor there). But so many of them are full of bacon, chicken, and ground beef. It's hard to find casserole recipes that are meatless. But they do exist! Here are 50 vegetarian casserole recipes:

    Great list, I love casseroles I can prep ahead of time and put in the oven.


  2. Carolyn says

    What a fantastic round up!


  3. Jeanette says

    Wow, bookmarking this for sure - what an incredible collection. Thank you for putting this together!


  4. Diane {Created by Diane} says

    what a great list of dishes!


  5. Shirley says

    I've wondered the same thing myself, but I figured it was because I grew up with a Chinese mom. Even though we kids insisted on eating chicken cutlets, burgers, and steaks. So I assumed that casseroles were baked and cheesy, and often made with a can of soup. But I like your broader definition much better, since there's tons of good-looking stuff on this list. I'm really intrigued by the grape leaves!


    • Kiersten says

      Yeah, the can of soup casseroles are what I grew up on. I still have a soft spot for them, even though I never make them myself. 🙂


  6. Lauren says

    Thanks for linking to me Kiersten! 🙂 You're a cool chick!


  7. Heidi @ Food Doodles says

    Thanks for linking to me here too! I just LOVE casseroles 🙂


  8. Brenda Williams says

    I love casseroles and this gives me a whole new list to fix. You are so wonderful...Thank you!


  9. Anna says

    Great post, but how funny is it that the ad next to those fabulous vegetarian casseroles is for dead sausage?


    • Kiersten says

      After trying to find independent sponsors with no success, I've had to go with ad networks, which means I have little control of what ads end up on my blog. And some ads are geo-targeted, meaning that I don't even see them on my end. I do my best to get things like that blocked when they come up, so if you see it again, feel free to shoot me an email with the name of the brand and I can try to figure out which network is running it and request that it be removed.


      • Anna says

        I hope you know that it wasn't a complaint or criticism, Kriersten...I just thought it was God's own justice that a company that sells meat would be spending its money advertising to an audience that would never buy their product. Your blog is a delight and I think most of us understand that the advertising isn't an endorsem*nt.

        Let them keep wasting their ad budget on a veggie site. It won't convert any of us and won't reach those that it might entice. Win-win!


        • Kiersten says

          Well, I do get complaints once in a while and when someone finds an ad really objectionable, I'm happy to block it (and I block a ton of spammy ads for weight loss gimmicks, things like that, that I personally don't care for), but in general, I take your approach. Do you read The Nation? I love their ad policy: http://www.thenation.com/advertising-policy. I used to spend hours every week combing through my ads, blocking anything processed, anything made with meat, and then I quit ad networks altogether and tried to sell ads myself. But the only way I can afford to keep this blog running is through ad networks (or I could do sponsored posts for Cool Whip and Velveeta--personally, I think the ads are better!) and I've come to a place where, if they're willing to advertise on my blog and help me pay for my hosting, pay for the ingredients I use to develop my vegetarian recipes, etc., then I am okay with that. 🙂

  13. Sandra says

    Any chance you can do a page of quick 30-60 minute (including prep time) recipes for us working moms out there? Love you site by the way.


    • Kiersten says

      Thank you for the idea! I do one round-up a month and I already have August's post scheduled, but I'm going to do this for September. 🙂 I'll be posting it on September 3rd!
