Loaded Sriracha Cauliflower Casserole

Sometimes you just need a really good casserole.  It warms up your home and leaves you only one pan to clean. This Loaded Sriracha Cauliflower Casserole is a delicious vegan casserole that EVERYONE will enjoy.

It’s just so wonderful to throw all the ingredients into one pan and this dairy free casserole is packed FULL of delicious veggies- cauliflower, red bell pepper, jalapeño, zucchini—mmmmm!

But of course you need a little protein to keep you feeling full long after you finish your plate… cannellini beans to the rescue! The white beans blend seamlessly with the veggies. Even kids or adults who don’t typically love beans will be none the wiser.
