For many of us, 2018 was a doozy, but we here at Brit + Co are ready to hit refresh in 2019! Follow our Hit Refresh series through January and February for new ideas, hacks, and skills that will help you achieve (and maintain!) those New Year’s resolutions.

Vegan food isn’t as fussy as it may seem. In fact, you can make vegan versions of just about all of your favorite foods, from vegan cheese to soul food, at home. But sometimes you get busy and nothing but a casserole will do. Luckily, the comfort food versions are just as convenient and tasty as the dishes you grew up loving. In fact, these vegan casserole recipes prove it.
