Spinach Brown Rice Gratin

Submitted by: DARLING216

Introduction

from 101 cookbook from 101 cookbook
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 1/2 C cooked brown rice
    2 C chopped spinach
    7 oz firn tofu
    1/2 C kalamata olives chopped
    1/2 medium red onion, diced
    1/2 C pine nuts, toasted
    1 C artichoke hearts. quartered
    3 large eggs
    3/4 C grated parmesian cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Rack in the top third. Grease a 10-inch round baking dish (or equivalent) with a bit of olive oil.


In a large bowl combine the rice, spinach, artichokes, and tofu. Now, reserving a bit of each for garnish, stir in the olives, and red onion, pine nuts and olive oil. Now stir in 1/4 cup of the cheese. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, and salt. Fold the eggs into the rice mixture, pour into the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until the casserole is set, and the top toasty and golden. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle with remaining onions, olives, and nuts. Sprinkle with a bit of salt before serving - or taste and get a sense of whether you need any.

  • This recipe looks really good; but I decided against making it when I saw the fat content. Holy smokes! 18 grams per serving? - 8/16/10

  • I made this and really liked it. I served it in a wheat tortilla and sprinkled some feta cheese on it. I think it would also be good over baby spinach. - 2/17/09

  • Sounds great! I hope to try this soon. (Do you use marinated artichoke hearts or fresh?) - 2/11/09

    I usually use artichokes packed in water, but I have used marinated. Both are good. The marinated will increase the fat, salt and calorie count.
