Vegan Broccoli Rice Casserole

Creamy, cheesy, and comforting, this Vegan Broccoli Rice Casserole is an easy main or side dish the whole family will love!

Gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free, and made from scratch with plant-based ingredients.


6 cups cooked brown rice

4 cups chopped broccoli

Cheese Sauce

2 cups cubed yellow potato

1 cup diced onion

½ cup diced carrot

2 cups water

1 cup raw cashews

3 cloves garlic

⅔ cup nutritional yeast

½ cup soy milk

¼ cup white vinegar

1 ½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground mustard powder

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

½ teaspoon paprika plus extra for sprinkling on top


½ cup breadcrumbs for topping


Place the potatoes, onions, carrots, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for 12 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Steam the broccoli for about 3 minutes, just until bright green. It will continue cooking in the casserole.

Pour the cooked vegetables and cooking water into a blender. Add the remaining sauce ingredients, and blend until smooth.

Place the cooked brown rice and the broccoli in a large mixing bowl and add the cheese sauce.

Transfer the rice mixture to a baking dish. Top with the breadcrumbs and the additional paprika.

Bake at 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until the center is hot. If you wish, broil the casserole for a couple of minutes to brown the topping.
