One of my family’s favorites!! Love switching it up every time. Tonight we are using brown rice, two bags of frozen broccoli and a half bag of frozen charred red peppers. We always use the cornflakes on top. Winner!!
This recipe comes together very quickly for me if I use frozen broccoli and cauliflower and the pasta option. We enjoy this recipe.
Can I make this ahead of time and bake when I get home in the evening?
Absolutely! One of my favorite things about a casserole is that it can be made ahead and baked later. Pop it in the oven while it is preheating to take the chill off from the refrigerator. Start the timer after the oven signals it is preheated.
So versatile and delicious!
A cellular protective powerhouse! Delicious, too! SAD fam loves it!
Made this last night using whole grain pasta as my starch. It was very good overall, however, I do think I will try a different starch next time. Have not quite developed a taste for whole grain pasta yet. I do like brown rice and quinoa, so great to have options.
Laughing at myself, was reading the ingredient list without reading the leading line – was thinking wow, that’s a lot of starches, pasta, rice and quinoa! Then restarted reading from the top-choose one. DOH!
I don’t have granulated garlic, what would be the right of amount of garlic powder or can chopped fresh garlic be used?
You can use powdered garlic the same as granulated.
Do you cook the vegetable before putting it in the casserole?
No, if you were supposed to cook it I would state it in the directions. I never leave you guessing on a recipe. Just chop it. I hope you enjoy!
I made this with brown rice, broccoli and cauliflower. I forgot to add a crispy topping. I enjoyed it with Not Yo Cheeze Sauce blended in. I will definitely make it again!
I think this is the 1st time since I was a kid living at home that I’ve made a casserole. Gluten free, low sodium, vegan, oil free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, sugar free. so yummy. Last night’s dinner and today’s lunch date with a side salad dressed with organic balsamic vinegar. Hard to believe I can eat this and maintain ultimate health and havent gained weight all winter. I used broccoli, kale, brown rice pasta and corn flake topping. Will be making t his again soon. My pup loved it too.
I call this “Choose Your Own Adventure!” The flavor is amazing.
I like the idea of the side salad to boost the greens in the meal. I definitely need to increase my greens intake.
