This is a similar meal that I made for my husband while I was away. This is a GREAT freezer meal. Once the casserole had cooled I cut up individual portions and froze. He ate all of the meals while I was gone!!!
Creamy Vegetarian Casserole
cooked brown rice
(approx 2 cups)
OR use quinoa
1 zucchini, sliced into thin rounds
1/2 onion, chopped
1 head of cauliflower, steamed
cheese, cheddar or mozzarella
2-3 cups cream of mushrooms soup
Preheat oven to 400
Flash steam the cauliflower and onions.
**I mushed the cauliflower with my hands once it was done but you could use a fork.**
You can use homemade cream of mushroom soup or cream-style soup by itself or you can add spices like cumin, curry, garlic powder or thyme.
In a casserole pan, add a layer of cooked brown rice. Add a layer of zucchini, a thin layer of cheese, a layer of mushed cauliflower and onions. Top with remaining zucchini and cheese. Pour cream of mushroom soup over the casserole and cover.
Cook covered for 30 minutes. Remove cover and cook for additional 15 minutes. Serve hot!
Next time I might add steamed broccoli as well. What do you think?
