Veggie Casserole

veggie-casserole.jpg

A weelicious reader sent me the idea for this recipe and I absolutely love it! It's the perfect dish to make when all you have on hand are a few bags of frozen vegetables or a refrigerator full of cooked ones and want to create something fast and delicious that your kids will love. I used broccoli and corn because I too had several bags in the freezer, but you could also try peas, cauliflower, or any other combinations you love.

You can also toss this dish together in the morning, put it in the fridge and pop it into the oven that night. I love a one pot dinner that's so easy to pull off!

    Hi,

    I love all your recipes but I do not have an oven to bake them. Would appreciate if you could advice me any other method to try those oven version recipes. My kid is 2 years old and I'm very tired of cooking rice all the time. I would like to try your recipes. Are these recipes suitable for a two year old toddler?

    Many thanks
    Gangka.

      Do you have a Toaster Oven? You can try to cook it on low on top of your oven until it all comes together.

    btw this is a HUGE hit with my 17monther. she cant have enough. i used cream of corn instead of regular corn coz i know she cant really chew corn yet as she is still getting her molars. my hubby liked it too and ate half of it. have to make a bigger batch next time.

      fresh veggies are always better but you can use canned corn and just thaw the veggies if they are frozen :)

    How can I add chicken to this?! Should I cook it first and then shred it and throw it in? Any advice would be great!

    This was a lifesaver for a side with friends coming unexpectedly and no chance to go to the grocery store. My baby, however, is allergic to egg. Today i just gave him the veggies with an extra infusion of cheese and made the grownup version with egg. Any suggestions so that i can make one dish for everyone to eat? Thanks!

      Katie, I am also allergic to egg. I find that silken tofu works as a great substitute! I would eliminate the milk or just use a splash.

    This is really delicious and so quick! And my 2.5 year old had thirds. Then my husband came home and I had to stop him from polishing off the whole casserole so we'd have lunch next day! Ill definitely be making this again with lots of different combos...leftover diced chicken, mushrooms, cauliflower, any veggie would be good! And FYI, I did not cook the broccoli before throwing it in the mix and it turned out perfect.

    this is VERY good. I would cut back on the milk a little bit next time because mine was a little bit too liquidy. But it was still very good! I will also add more cheese next time.

    I did nota see a response. Is this freezable and if so do you cook it first or not?

      Melt the butter in a large sklliet. Saute the onions and mushrooms in the butter. Boil green beans in chicken broth for 10 minutes and drain. Add the green beans, mushroom soup, onion rings, and House Seasoning, to taste, to the onion mixture. Stir well. Pour into a greased 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, then top the casserole with the Cheddar and bake for 10 minutes longer, or until the casserole is hot and cheese is melted.

    Made this yesterday and it is so yummy! I followed the recipe exactly and mine turned out fine, not runny or anything. Even my husband, who is picky about me using brown rice, loved it. My 19-month old seemed to like it too although he ate around the broccoli, but that's not unusual for him!

    I just made this for supper tonight and it turned out great! The only thing I did different was added two tablespoons of all purpose flour because I was afraid my frozen veggies would make the dish runny. Not sure if it needed the flour or not but it wasn't runny at all.

    Is it two cups of cooked brown rice, or two cups of brown rice, cooked? That makes a big difference.

    Made it last night amid screams of \"I don't like that!\" \"I won't eat it!\"... Plate was cleaned! Guess she was mistaken. :-)
