The word ‘casserole’ might conjure up ideas of Midwestern grannies toting their Pyrex to the local potluck – but it really doesn’t have to be like that. In fact, the best vegetarian casseroles are dishes that fit seamlessly into modern life. They’re typically quick to assemble, largely hands-off to cook, and the results can feed a crowd or last for multiple leftover reheat sessions, all of which means you’re saving time in your busy life. Oh, and delicious, cozy, comfort food to the max. Big wins all around. By the way, if your granny held onto all that vintage Pyrex, it’s probably going for a boatload on Ebay.
