Casseroles for Cold Nights

As the weather cools down, casserole season is officially heating up. Unlike the fatty, sodium-packed casseroles of yesteryear, these whole-food, plant-based creations are loaded with colorful fresh vegetables, healthy whole grains and legumes, and flavorful herbs and spices. Warm up weeknight meals with one of these FOK favorites.
