Brown Rice and Broccoli Casserole

Share This:

I’ve mentioned a Brown Rice and Broccoli dish that my husband and teenage daughter LOVE. I’ve even given an unofficial recipe. Today I’ll give the official version.

I’ve made this with millet and it wasn’t a huge hit with the family but I like it. It would be great with couscous, noodles, or even quinoa. I don’t bake this one because it is still to hot for me to use the oven most days so I guess this isn’t really a casserole. Once it cools down I’ll try an oven version but for now I cook the rice, steam the veggies, and make the sauce in separate pans so it is a little dishwashing intensive.

In our meat-eating days I would make a chicken and rice casserole that used cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups AND a stick of butter. Bleck! We loved it then but now I can’t imagine! So unhealthy! This is our stand-in casserole.

Brown Rice and Broccoli Casserole

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Cooked Brown Rice (More or less for depending on the number you are serving)
  • 3 Cups steamed, chopped Broccoli (other veggies could be added)
  • 1 recipe HH Brown Gravy (I use brown rice flour to make this gluten-free)

Do

  1. Pour cooked rice into a large casserole dish.
  2. Add broccoli or other veggies and gently mix.
  3. Prepare HH Brown Gravy recipe and pour it over rice and broccoli. Stir until everything is incorporated.
  4. Enjoy!

Serve

This is so easy to make. It re-heats well so I’ll often make it early in the day and reheat it for dinner. It is a great potluck dish. Many of my readers are the only one’s in their family who are plant-based, this recipe will work for you. Simply set aside half for you and allow your family to add chicken to their portion. This would also be good with a faux cheese sauce instead of the Brown Gravy sauce.
