Ingredients

  • 2 T . olive oil , divided
  • 1 small yellow onion , chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 8 ounces crimini mushrooms , chopped
  • 1 small head cauliflower , chopped into small florets
  • 1 t . dried basil
  • 3/4 c . green peas , rinsed
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 3 c . cooked long-grain brown rice
  • 3 T . fresh parsley , chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 c . cheddar cheese , grated

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet.
  • Add in onion along with a bit of salt and pepper.
  • Saute 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in mushrooms and basil.
  • Cook until mushrooms have softened and released some of their liquid (3-5 minutes).
  • Remove the mushroom mixture and deposit it onto a plate.
  • Set aside.
  • Heat the other tablespoon of oil in the same pan.
  • Add in the garlic and cauliflower.
  • Cook until cauliflower has softened (8-10 minutes).
  • Add back the mushroom mixture along with the green peas, lemon juice, cooked rice, and parsley.
  • Mix and heat just until everything is warmed.
  • Oil or butter an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  • Lightly beat the eggs in a large bowl.
  • Temper them by adding in a small spoonful of the cooked veggie/rice mix, beating continuously as you do so.
  • This is to prevent the eggs from scrambling upon coming in contact with heat.
  • Once tempered, add in the rice/veggie mix and two cups of cheese.
  • Stir until cheese is evenly distributed.
  • Pour the contents into the oiled baking dish.
  • Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  • Cover the gratin with aluminum foil.
