I'm really excited for this cookbook! I love Julie's other books, and I love casseroles but often lack inspiration. I see on Amazon that this is due out in October, so I know I'm really jumping the gun with this thread, but I was wondering if anyone had been (or is) a tester and could share your experiences with the recipes so that we could enjoy vicariously through you until this comes out!

Casseroles are my favorite type of dinners, because you can just throw all of the components for a meal- veggie, protein, grain, etc- into a pan, and then catch up on chores or reading or TV while it bakes, and then presto! A healthy balanced dinner! I will definitely check out this cookbook.

This is definitely the book I'm most looking forward to right now. I was thinking of saving the book credit I got from the Amazon antitrust settlement to buy it, but Afro-Vegan weakened my resolve.

I really, really hope it has a lot of make-ahead, one dish meal kind of things. Freezable ideal. I preordered it and really wish it were already out since I've been making lots of meals to freeze.

The only casserole I've ever made is the chickpea/broccoli one from VWaV but I'm curious if a casserole book would be for me. I'll be interested.

While many of us are eagerly awaiting this book, would it be worth it to have a casserole thread? I love casseroles and would love a thread just on that topic. Successes from other cookbooks, links to blog casserole ideas that have worked, or that we'd like to try. What do you guys think? I guess summer is an odd time to be talking about casseroles, but I'm an all year round casserole lover.

I regularly make some of the casseroles on fatfree vegan, which is how I fell in love with casseroles. I like to make them on Sundays and then have leftovers for a couple of days. I can't wait for this book and it's great timing for fall when you can actually use your oven again.

Yes, thinking about using my oven right now makes me cringe but the idea of making casseroles is tempting.

Are you sure? I thought I had never made a casserole in my life, but then it was pointed out to me that lasagna and enchiladas are casseroles, both of which I was making all the time. But other than those, casseroles were neither something I grew up with or made. However, my spouse will occasionally request a casserole for dinner, usually on cold fall and winter nights, or when we are busy and this is seen as a time saving suggestion. I'm not sure that casseroles are very time saving. If you want them to be tasty it seems there is often a lot of chopping and browning and sauce making and such work involved before the throw it in the oven step. But they can be nice warm comfort food on a cold night, and they are often great for making in big batches, freezing, and re-heating later. Oh, cabbage rolls. Do those count as a casserole? I grew up with those and then invented a really nice Hungarian cabbage roll recipe that I like to make now and then. Any way, Julie is a kitchen goddess, so I'm curious to see what she does with this theme.

I think nonvegan casseroles tend to be more convenient because they rely on things like canned soup, sour cream, eggs, and cheese. Vegan versions you often have to start by making subs for those ingredients.

I like that idea, its especially good for those of us in the UK where summer is 2 degrees warmer than winter!

And in Australia where we are in the first week of winter. It's 7C outside at 3pm and a casserole would've been so nice for dinner.

I wasn't thinking about enchiladas and lasagna. I did make lasagna once (when I was testing AFR) and I've probably made enchiladas (on my own) once or twice. My mom used to make enchiladas all the time. I figured those were layered things, not quite casseroles. So yeah although casseroles aren't something I grew up with in general (unless you count enchiladas) but I'd be interested to see where Julie takes this.

Love me some casseroles. Love the ease of preparation and lovely flavors of Vegan Diner so I'll be picking this one up for sure when it comes out.

See, we be thinking of you folks in the antipodes. It's probably my husband's fixation with AFL, and the footie games and or videos going on the background each night, that has my mind on winter-like food.

Your husband is obviously a sensible, well-rounded and immensely likeable man. :)
