My dad really loves my cooking, which is so sweet since he's such a meat-and-potatoes guy. Whatever I make, though, he's really open to and always enjoys it. I'd like to cook him something for father's day, but I can only see him in the morning so I was thinking of making him a casserole or something he can put together quickly, but I'm looking for ideas to really wow him. A pasta casserole or maybe something taco-y would be good. What would you make for your omni dad, to put in his fridge and have as a dinner mid-week?

What about lasagna? My dad loves vegan lasagna. Or baked pasta puttanesca?

Oh, Lard, do I make a lot of casseroles. You can just go to my blog and search "casseroles," but the blogspot search function kind of sucks so here are a few that go over big around here; some involving pasta, and some not!

Betty Goes Vegan has some lovely casseroles. Okay, i've only made the taco casserole so far but i have a few flagged. These seems especially fitting if your dad is a meat and potatoes guy. The next one on my list to make involves frozen french fries and vegan cheeseburgers. WIN.

For one Toronto PPK potluck, PeeBeeJay made the tempeh casserole (I think it's called Mom's casserole or something like that) from Vegan Brunch. It was really good and I think it's totally make ahead.

I would probably make my Dad an apple pie. He eats those mini personal pies in the box kind of deal, for breakfast sometimes. Or a pumpkin pie. Basically my dad eats deserts for breakfast and I'm not helping.

I would also make him the Mexican Millet from VCON, that's something he would like. And I did make the chipotle mac that Isa put up a few days ago, and that's something that's right up my dad's alley too.

And soup! Any kind of soup. For my dad I would probably do a lentil with some spice to it, or a white bean and escarole soup, with lots of garlic.
