Leftover Turkey (or Chicken) Casserole
Brown rice, leftover meat, vegetables, and a sprinkle of cheese combine to make this delicious casserole, a favorite that I've been making for years!

cheese of your choice
(I like white cheddar)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees after you chop your vegetables.
Heat the oil in a large stainless steel skillet.
Add in the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and carrot, along with some salt and pepper.
Cook 3-4 minutes, or until softened.
Add in the snow peas and broccoli, along with a good splash of broth to keep the veggies moist.
Once the green veggies have softened, stir in the spinach and cooked chicken or turkey.
Cook just until the meat is warmed and the spinach has wilted. Add a splash more broth if need be.
Finally, stir in the parsley and a bit more salt and pepper to taste.
In a 9 x 13 baking dish, spread the brown rice in an even layer.
Top with the vegetable/meat mixture.
Lastly, top the veggie mix with some of your favorite cheese.
Bake the casserole, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is lightly golden.
