The BEST thing about cold weather (other than leggings & oversized sweaters) is a piping hot serving of warmth adorned with a hunk of crusty bread—that’s right, COMFORT FOOD. Nothing better. But, when you’re trying to decrease the meat in your daily routine, sometimes even the most well-intentioned casserole can fall flat. That’s why I created this amazing list of vegetarian fall comfort foods!
Even when you have some reluctant veggie eaters, this list has got you covered!
Fall means comfort food, and this is the ultimate list of Vegetarian Comfort Foods the whole family will be begging for this fall!
Fall Vegetarian Comfort Foods
It’s all about the fall veggies this time of year, and there’s nothing I love more than a good ol’ casserole straight outa the oven. The list below helps SO much when you’re looking for a little something new to tempt those fall veggie loving tastebuds!
Then, let’s just jump right in, shall we?
Baked Thanksgiving Chickpeas with Butternut Squash by Babaganosh
What I love about this dish is that it has butternut squash! I am completely obsessed with this veggie right now, and I will eat it in anything. Plus, come on—the cheese alone is worth making this dish. This one uses a blender to puree some of the butternut. That’s what gives it such a creamy thickness! My mouth is watering as I type this LOL!
Savory Pumpkin Lasagna (Vegetarian) by Goodie Godmother
What I love about this dish is that it uses no-bake lasagna noodles, real cheese, and spinach. It’s a one dish wonder filled with comfort and tons of nutrients! Simple, beautiful, and come on–it’s lasagna. You’ve gotta get this one in the rotation.
Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie by Pinch of Yum
What I love about this dish is that it’s perfect for after Thanksgiving (you know, when you have a million lbs of mashed potatoes). Vegetarians everywhere will fall in love with this heart warming comfort food (just like mom used to make (almost!)). Also, I’m a sucker for anything with red wine and rosemary! This one is the total package.
Eggplant Ricotta Casserole by Not Enough Cinnamon
What I love about this dish is that it is filled to the brim with cheesy goodness! Plus, it is gluten free—so, you won’t feel so bad about all that cheese, amiright? Maybe the best thing about this dish is how few ingredients it has! You’ve got to check this one out!
Vegetable Enchilada Casserole by Budget Bytes
What I love about this dish is that it’s MEXICAN! Oh, there’s not much that makes my heart sing as much as Mexican food. Fall comfort food with black beans, veggies galore & (yes, cheese)! Throw in some chips, salsa and a frozen margarita—this is my love language, sister!
