Thermobexta’s Creamy Vegetable Casserole

creamy veg casseroleThis is simple yet delicious, dairy free and so creamy!  Best of all – it’s versatile 🙂  I have served it on rice, on pasta, in a dish on it’s own and my favourite – AS A PIE FILLING!!  It is the perfect consistency for any of these things.

4 garlic cloves
handful of fresh herbs – basil or parsley are my favourites to use
160g leek, sliced
30g ghee or butter or coconut oil
200g cauliflower, broken in to small florets
170g carrot, peeled, diced
70g parsnip, peeled, diced
70g celery, sliced into moons
70g red capsicum, diced
1 tbsp vegetable stock concentrate
270ml tin coconut cream
140g zucchini, diced
120g corn kernels
100g frozen peas
salt and pepper

1. Place garlic and herbs in mixer bowl. Chop for 5 seconds/speed 7/MC on. Scrape down sides of bowl.

2. Add leek and ghee. Saute for 5 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off.

3. Add cauliflower, carrots, parsnip, celery, capsicum, stock paste and coconut cream. Cook for 15 minutes/100/reverse/speed soft/MC on.

4. Taste and season with salt and pepper if required. Add zucchini, corn and peas. Stir to incorporate these ingredients in to the casserole. Cook for 6 minutes/100/reverse/speed 1/MC on.

5. Serve with rice or pasta, or used as a pie filling – you can use a pastry top and bottom, or top with mashed sweet potato.

  1. Yum! I decided to make this tonight. It just looked like it should be a curry to me so I added a teaspoon of curry powder at the saute stage. I also didn’t have a few things so left them out or subbed something else (used onion instead of leek – I sauteed the onion too, didn’t have capsicum, corn or parsnip but added in some broccoli and larger quantity of the other veg). I had so much. I used lots to make a pie filling but still have some leftover which will be great to scoop up with the homemade spelt flour pita bread I made today (skinnymixers recipe). Thanks!


  2. What a delicious veg meal! I absolutely love that i can enjoy a big serve of veg in a very tasty dish. Steamed veg are boring ha ha. Thank you!


  3. Great recipe. I love that this casserole doesn’t use potato, sweet potato and pumpkin which I often associate with casserole. It has a fresh taste and is versatile and easy to make. Love it!


  4. Fool proof! For someone with no skills in cooking meals, I made this as a pie and it was awesome. I didn’t have any vegetable stock paste so added some curry powder at the end and it was fabulous, and makes a large amount!


  5. I added 500g diced chicken after 7 minutes of heating, and it cooked nicely in the time it took for all the veggies to cook too. Awesome dish!


  6. This recipe is amazing as a pie filling 🙂
    I also had left overs which I ate with pasta for lunch it was very tasty.
    I’ve been looking for a veg pie filling for a while this will be a regular meal in our house ☺️


  7. This is so easy and tasty. Its lovely to have a vege recipe not full of tomato or potato. I’ve made my Creamy vegetable casserole into Shepherd’s Pies by putting it in to ramekins and topping with mashed sweet potato and grated cheese. Perfect mid-week meal
