Rich and cheesy tasting without a lick of cheese (and with plenty of nutritional yeast), this comforting and easy tomato and herb-drenched baked farro casserole may bump your favorite pasta bake down a notch or two. Farro is a rustic, chewy variety of whole-kernel wheat rich in protein and fiber, and usually stocked in nice groceries with other heirloom grains, such as quinoa, or look wherever Mediterranean pastas and rices are sold.

Everyone loves the nostalgic classic, vegetable pot pie. Many VegKitchen readers have let us know that this mild dish of hearty veggies enclosed in pie crust is on their regular cool-weather meal rotation; it’s also a crowd-pleasing vegan option for a Thanksgiving or Christmas menu.
Using prepared whole-grain pie crusts makes pot pies a snap to prepare. We like to take them out of the tins they come in, and place them in a similar-sized pie pan. Adapted from The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas. This recipe makes two pies, for at least 12 servings. For a smaller crowd, to make one pie, halve the recipe. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky
A quick cooked cereal like oatmeal or a multi-grain blend makes a hearty breakfast, but there are some people, yours truly included, that don’t enjoy sweet breakfasts. That’s where these savory breakfast bowls come in. Topped with tempeh, avocado, and greens, these bountiful bowlfuls will keep you going all day.
Though this doesn’t take long to make, it’s probably more than what you’d want to do first thing in the early morning before work and school, so try it for a leisurely breakfast or brunch on the weekend. It’s a fantastic thing to make if you’re going to do any athletic activity! These bowls make an excellent lunch or dinner, too, paired with a simple slaw. more→
This tofu noodle skillet is a vegan version of the vintage tuna-noodle casserole that evokes 1950s TV moms in shirtwaist dresses, wearing pearls. Firm and chewy baked tofu stands in for the tuna. The first few time I made this, I baked it, which tends to dry it out quite a bit.
When I made it again, I realized that there’s really no reason to bake it, as all the ingredients are cooked and ready, needing just a spin in the skillet to pull eveything together. However, if you’d like to make this more casserole-like, simply transfer to a small casserole dish and serve from there. Or, you can make it ahead of time, and then reheat briefly in the oven in a casserole dish. Serve this mild dish with plenty of green veggies — broccoli, broccoli rabe, greens, or green beans. more→
Seriously—who needs fake meat when you can make hearty, beautifully textured dishes using grains and beans? This serves up deliciously on rolls, but if you’re not a bread person, you can serve the mixture in a lettuce-leaf cup or atop a corn tortilla. Serve with baked potatoes or sweet potatoes and any slaw-style salad. Fresh corn on the cob when in season is a great addition as well.
