Great as a casserole or as a side dish. The ginger and pepper give it a tiny kick. Great as a casserole or as a side dish. The ginger and pepper give it a tiny kick.
Number of Servings: 12


    3 cups carrots, chopped
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    4 med-lg garlic cloves, chopped
    2 tsp ground fresh ginger
    2 tsp fresh ground pepper
    1 cup brown rice (dry measure)
    2 1/4 cups water
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1/4 cup parsley, chopped
    1 cup mixed cheese


Heat oil over medium heat. Add in spices and carrots. Saute to mix flavors. Add in rice and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 45 minutes until rice is done but firm. Mix in milk, parsley, and 1/2 cup cheese. Mix well until cheese is melted. Top with remaining cheese and cover to let cheese melt.
When preparing for a party, make the rice and carrot mixture early on. Transfer to baking dish (a glass bread dish worked great for me). Mix in milk, parsley, and 1/2 cup cheese. About 20 minutes before serving, top with remaining cheese and bake the dish at 350 for 10-20 minutes. Time will vary depending on how cooled the original mixture got.
Makes 12 1/2 cup servings

  • Easy, and excellent. May try to add leeks or onions next time. - 2/11/11

  • Too spicy for the kids, but my hubby and I liked it. I used reduced fat cheese to help with the calories. I think something is wrong with the quantity of rice used either in the recipe text or the nutrition calculation - they don't match. - 2/23/10
