Vegan potato casserole with “minced meat“

The comfiest dish on this planet is a casserole, right? Especially when the winter season starts, there is no better idea than adding all your leftovers from the week to a casserole dish with a vegan cream sauce and lots of grated cheese.

We prepared a casserole classic for you today, filled with potatoes and vegan "minced meat," topped with oat cream and grated cheese. We recommend not to use granulated soy for this recipe because the ready-to-go version works much better here, because of the firmer texture. You can find vegan minced „meat“ in a lot of supermarkets (we used Lidl's "Next Level Hack").
