At first, “Taco Casserole” kinda seems like one of those dishes that comes from one of those families who make cheeseburger-roni with tater tots on top…
But let me tell you, this is pretty tasty and you can make it as healthy or unhealthy as you like!
You will need:
3 cups meat substitute such as:
-vegetarian beef crumbles
-TVP (small crumbles)
-choice of beans
(or a combination of any)
1 can of kidney beans, drained
1 1/2 C biscuit mix (DIY recipe)
1 C non-dairy milk
Any optional toppings you want such as:
Black olives, sliced
Vegan sour cream
1. Heat oven to 400F (200C) and grease an 8″ baking dish.
2. Follow the taco seasoning directions and mix with any or all meat substitute combinations. Stir in kidney beans.
3. Once everything is combined and seasoned, put the delicious bean mixture into the baking dish. (If using vegan cheese, sprinkle this on top now).
4. In a bowl, combine the biscuit mix and non-dairy milk. One mixed, pour over top the mixture.
5.Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown on top.
6. Add toppings and serve!
This makes about 6-8 delicious portions.
Just writing about it makes me want to go make it again. Perhaps I will!
