Vegan Quinoa & Veggie Casserole with “Cheese” Sauce

A piping hot, comforting casserole can make any kind of day a whole lot better. But many typical casseroles are loaded with cheese that can leave you feeling bogged down. Instead, try this vegan dish – topped with a lighter cashew “cheese” sauce that’ll have you happily licking your fork. The filling is loaded with broccoli, kale and sun-dried tomatoes for a nutritious, delicious lunch or dinner (which can be easily reheated for leftovers!).
