Cheesy Cauliflower Mushroom Gratin – a healthy, vegetarian dinner that is easy to prepare and packed full of nutrition and protein!
I haven’t posted nearly enough savory recipes lately.
One would think all I do is eat single serve chocolate cakes!
I admit, I do like my cake, but I also make and eat my fair share of veggie-based dinners.
My favorite nightly meals revolve around vegetables and a grain of some sort, usually rice. Sometimes chicken is the protein, sometimes eggs, and more often than not, cheese is involved!
Back at my most allergic, brown rice was a huge staple in my diet and still is. I love the chewy grain and am a pro at making it fluffy.
I’ve often joked that this blog should have been named ‘Fire and Rice’ for my eternal love of the stuff.
Rice is also something that agrees with everyone’s allergies, so it’s a must have for our family.
This meal combines my adored food with cauliflower, mushrooms, green peas, eggs, and cheese for a filling and delicious meatless meal.
This meal pleases everyone around here, I’m happy to report. That doesn’t happen often, let me tell you.
My mushroom-hating daughters will even overlook them (a bit) when I serve this dish. What kid can resist anything that’s cheesy, I ask?
