Ingredients

Easy Vegan Protein Casserole

  • 6 ounces short pasta dry (170 g)
  • 1 cup mixed veggies chopped (100 g)
  • 2 cups baby spinach 60 g
  • 1 cup chickpeas cooked (165 g)
  • 2 cups protein cheese sauce 480 ml

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C) and prepare an 8×8 inch glass baking dish.
  • Cook pasta according to package instructions in a large pot. 5 minutes before they are done cooking, add your mixed veggies.
  • Drain the cooked pasta and veggies and return everything to the pot. 
  • You can now season it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika or dried herbs to your liking or leave it as it is.
  • Stir in the spinach and chickpeas. Mix with a spoon to combine, then transfer to your baking dish.
  • Make the vegan protein cheese sauce in a blender and pour over the pasta, chickpeas and veggies.
  • Place your casserole dish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the sauce turns slightly golden.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes and serve warm.
  • Store any leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 5-6 days and reheat at your convenience.

Notes

  • You can use gluten-free, whole-grain or legume-based pasta for this recipe.
  • Add any veggies of your choice to your pasta, we like zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers and cauliflower the most!
  • Instead of chickpeas, add any legumes, tofu, tempeh or vegan sausage or crumbles to this dish!
  • This recipe works when using hummus instead of cheese sauce! Make it cheesier by adding store-bought cheese shreds.
