"Cheezy" Broccoli Rice Casserole

I like casseroles. It's a one dish meal with very little mess and cleanup. This recipe is from 'The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook'. I was going for a "golden hue" by adding turmeric but I think I may have added to much as it's quite yellow!

This morning I made a rockin' green smoothie. It was so sweet and beautifully green with little blue speckles. I really enjoyed this one and so did Buster! (Well sort of, he had about a tablespoon. Picky dog!)

Rockin' Green Smoothie

5 dates, pitted
1/2 cup water
1 cup ice
1 ripe banana
handful of frozen blueberries
2 collard leaves, ribs removed (about 2 cups)

Blend dates and water until smooth. Add ice, banana and blueberries. Add a little more water if necessary. Blend until smooth, then add collards and blend until smooth.

Yum! Both the casserole and the smoothie look deeeeelicious!

I've seen you use the uncheese book several times. I'm curious - do a lot of the recipes contain soy?

The casserole and the smoothie both look great.

If I remember correctly there quite a few that you need tofu or soymilk.

That is a really good casserole! Although, sadly, eating it is how I discovered my sensitivity to nutritional yeast. :(

Wow, that looks so much like the broccoli-cheese casserole my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. I used to love it. This one is probably a hell of a lot better for you though!

I really have to check out that cookbook.
