minute rice 1

We like quick, easy and tasty meals when we are travel from city to city across North America. Since we are only in one location for about 5 weeks at a time, I do plan a lot of our meals. I don’t want to have a lot of left overs when we are leaving so I like to buy simple food with little ingredients. We also have potluck at church most weeks we are traveling and a vegetarian easy casserole is a important recipe to have under your belt.

I am thankful for Minute Rice brown rice. It enables our family to eat healthy but also quickly. I don’t have time at this point in my life to be in the kitchen for long periods of time preparing elaborate meals. I wish I did. But when we are in a new city, I am often taking care of two kids who are vying for my attention.

A favorite easy casserole recipe that we enjoy is a simple broccoli and rice casserole. Does your family have a variation of this recipe too?

All you need is to mix brown rice, frozen broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, and cheese together and bake. So simple right?
