We love a good casserole in our house; an easy to throw together meal that can be thrown in the oven while finishing up other household chores is a real lifesaver! Not to mention the fewer the dishes, the better. This mushroom and cauliflower casserole is a very flexible recipe that can be as rich, or as healthy as you want it to be! You can replace the sour cream with greek yogurt, and the eggs with flax eggs for a healthy twist without sacrificing flavor or texture.
Garlic, roasted cauliflower, sautéed mushrooms, and cheese come together to make this dish unforgettable. This would be perfect to have on hand for those busy school nights – and what a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies!
