*Disclaimer: No vegans were harmed in the making of this casserole.
If I told you that I had a recipe for a hearty vegan casserole, would you believe me?
I said HEARTY, not healthy. Also this is definitely very healthy. Lentils, brown rice, and TONS of veggies.
Nope, didn’t think you’d believe me about the hearty vegan thing. I didn’t believe me either, actually. ‘Hearty’ and ‘vegan’ are just two words that don’t normally go together. Well, they can go together I suppose, like hammers and thumbs.
This lentil and brown rice casserole is a perfect example of a hearty vegan dish – warm and filling, with lots of flavour. It’s reminiscent of a nice winter hash or a really thick stew. Packed with fibre and protein, it will please even the meat eaters in your life.
This recipe takes a while to cook, so be sure to plan for that. It also makes great leftovers for lunches.
