This is yummy-ness in a casserole dish. I tried to make a version of this the other evening but it was a complete failure – it was like a brick coming out of the oven…not really sure how I could have messed up a casserole but I did. I’m happy to note that today’s casserole for lunch was a hit. It combines the deliciousness of rice, beans and cheese! It was hearty and satisfying. I paired it with a nice garden salad and some milk. The protein combination of the rice and beans make this a complete protein and perfect for your body to digest.
1 1/2 cups rice, cooked
1 cup of beans, rinsed
1 cup of cottage cheese
1 cup of cheese, shredded
1/4 cup minced celery, option
2 green onions, chopped
1. Mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl, add a couple tablespoons of water or milk if it looks too dry. Grease casserole dish and add ingredients.
2. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until hot and bubbly.
