Looking for a hearty casserole packed full of veggies + protein + whole grains? Make one of these delicious healthy casseroles at any time of the year! They’re perfect for the entire family or for meal prep.
I had a conversation with a friend last week and she was so excited that fall weather has hit Minneapolis because now she can finally make casseroles! I agreed with her and then realized I never stopped making casseroles since last fall. It’s true- casseroles are perfect year round. You can even throw them on the grill instead of your oven if you’re anything like my mom. That’s right- I asked my mom to test one of these recipes for me 2 weeks ago. I said, “mom, the one thing you HAVE to do is follow the directions.” Got a snap from her with the casserole on the grill. LOL. Mom- that wasn’t part of the directions, but I guess it works.
This past week has been so fun watching everyone in my life make a casserole. I’ve gotten countless texts and IGs not only from readers, but from family members and friends! It makes me so happy when you guys make my recipes and then share them with your communities because if you don’t, I’ll never know if you actually like them or not 🙂 I’m sure you’re just dying to know which one was my favorite casserole. Here’s my line-up: 1. Healthy Chicken Enchilada 2. Naked Spinach Quinoa Lasagna 3. Sweet Potato Green Curry.
I want to extend a huge thank you out to our amazing Casserole Week partner, truRoots. truRoots’ product selection really was perfect for this project. I love my grains and truRoots really does whole grains the best out there. Out of these 6 casseroles, we featured 3 of their products: Sprouted Quinoa, Germinated Brown Rice, and Ancient Grains Pasta.

Refrigerator: Store all casseroles in an air tight container, such as a glass pyrex, for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Freezer: If you plan to freeze, we suggest baking your casseroles in a disposable/aluminum casserole dish. Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of cooked, cooled casserole and press out all of the air. Then, wrap the entire casserole in tin foil and place in the freezer. Write the name and date of casserole on the tin foil. To reheat, take the frozen casserole out of the freezer and let thaw in the fridge over night. Either reheat single servings of the casserole in the microwave, or reheat the entire thing in the oven (we suggest 40 for 20 minutes).
