As our family gets larger and larger, there are more and more dietary needs to think about when we have big family meals. This vegan casserole is an example of me trying to make something hearty and filling for people who aren't eating animal products! Yup, the "chicken" and the "cheese" are both vegan products! Maddy let me know that Daiya has changed their recipe for vegan cheese and it tastes much better than it did previously.
The problem is that I have no idea what to call it. The Vegan Chicken, Potato, Mushroom title is just so long! But, I couldn't think of anything shorter yet descriptive, so I've just shortened it to VCPM. If you can think of a better name for this casserole, let me know in the comments.
I am usually concerned that vegan dishes are mainly salads and not very satisfying. But, this casserole, with the mushrooms and potatoes, even if it didn't have chicken strips, is very satisfying. I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but others in my family are and I know that mushrooms have a lot of health benefits. Mushrooms have many important nutrients such as B vitamins, selemium, potassium, copper and vitamin D. They are a natural way to try to reduce cholesterol. Mushrooms can make a very good meat replacement in recipes from burgers (portobello) to casseroles (like these white mushrooms). Of course, the potatoes in this recipe really help to fill out the casserole.
As vegan products start to become more diverse and taste better, anyone can opt for a healthier recipe from time to time!
So, if you are vegan or if you are just cutting back on your meat consumption, I hope you will give this casserole a try and enjoy it!
