Casserole-shmasserole, with broccoli!

Casseroles, crockpot creations, soups... these dishes all fall into the "one pot wonder" category, which in my opinion equals AWESOME! Now that the temps are dropping, one pot wonders become a must in this house. You can throw together a pot of something with nearly anything that you have in the house. Not even kidding! Here's the Broccoli and Rice Casserole that we like. It's hard to find recipes for broccoli, rice, and cheese that leave out the cream of mushroom soup. I haven't found a super-healthy replacement, so this recipe is nice because it just leaves that ingredient out all together.

Broccoli and Rice Casserole (as seen in Super Baby Food):
  • 2 C., or so, of cooked brown rice (using chicken broth instead of water is nice for his recipe)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. shredded cheese (with a little extra to sprinkle on top before baking)
  • 1 C. chopped fresh broccoli
  • Onion, mushrooms, carrots, garlic - whatever combination you have that you can chop and saute before adding
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mix everything together and bake covered in a buttered dish at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
