Casseroles make a speedy, nutritious meal
Get creative with casseroles! These healthy creations can be served at breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
During the first days of fall, as we start to notice a slight chill in the air, we tend to crave the type of warm and comforting fare that fills our kitchen with enticing aromas. For a speedy yet crowd-pleasing meal in under an hour, look no further than the king of cold weather cooking, the casserole. Casserole cooking is an ancient method that predates ovens, when covered vessels of meat and vegetables were buried in the embers of a fire to cook. Among its many virtues, the casserole meal is flexible and economical in terms of both ingredients and effort. But don't let the coziness of casseroles eclipse their culinary and nutritional virtues. Using fall's bounty of harvest produce, casseroles can be bright, fresh, and a vivid palette of flavours. Dig into the following recipes and get ready for some appreciatively empty plates around the dinner table.
