I shared this vegan taco casserole on my blog a few months ago as an easy to throw together dinner.
It is still one of my favorite things to make when I don’t really feel like cooking.
I’ve made several different versions in the last few months, but this one is my new favorite!
I’m in love with taco casserole. Whenever I’m not in a cooking mood, I can whip this up in less than 10 minutes and chuck it in the oven to let it do the work for me.
It’s such an easy dinner but seriously one of our favorites.
There are so many ways to customize it too!
Top a big plate of this casserole with some hot sauce and fresh lime juice and you get a plate of spicy vegan cheesy goodness!
It’s the yellow flakes that you see in the picture.
Top 10 vegan things I can’t live without? Yeast cheese would totally make the list.
