Hi,

I have searched the board and can't really find a recipe for broccoli, cheese, rice casserole. Does anyone have one that they wouldn't mind giving me? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Well, I seldom have a "recipe" for anything I make. I just throw in whatever sounds good at the moment. By "casserole", I'm guessing you mean something you put in the oven, but I use a stovetop pot-type thing which the manufacturer calls a casserole. What I will describe is enough for one person, or two if you aren't a big eater :)

For this type of meal, I'd just cook the rice as usual, which is about ten mins short of actually being done (about 25-30 mins). Turn down the heat. This gives me time to toss in the veggies, which will then have enough time to heat up, but not get all mushy. I like my veggies with flavor and nutrients intact. If it wasn't for the wilting, fresh would be best of course, but in the interest of not having to throw out veggies all the time, I get frozen. Broccoli florets are best, which are the top parts, so you don't get a whole bunch of just stems.

Now, there's no reason to stop with broccoli! Corn goes great with this dish, and some onions would be nice too. Frozen peppers and onions work well. Carrots, peas, whatever suits you.

For seasoning, my favorites are celery seed, oregano, paprika, and a few other things like cumin. So again, whatever seems like the ones I want get added. I don't like a lot of "spiceyness", so these always go in very sparingly, and only one or two in any given meal is typical.

Last but not least, throw in the "white american cheese food", and don't forget the margarine. Yeah, I know, margarine may not be so healthy, and junk food cheese probably not either, but if we stop consuming everything that has some kind of potential downside, we can't even drink water. I recommend Imperial margarine, which tastes so much better than any other I've tried, I can actually eat it right from the stick! I don't do no watered-down "spead" stuff. Those are so lacking in flavor you end up adding three times as much, and still you aren't satisfied, while your food ends up with a bunch of yellowish water on it. (sorry for the rant)

Just yesterday, I tried my first soy cheese. It was flavorful, and melted well, so I've no complaints on that. However, I don't yet have a good fix on whether there might be some gluten because of modified protiens someplace. I hope to make sure soon. I don't think I am sensitive to dairy, but I just don't like what typically ends up in such products. All those hormones and junk they pump into the animals, and the feed is so disgusting I won't go into it in the same discussion with a healthy recipe.

The amount of cheese is usually 3 to 4 slices, and two or three tablespoons of margarine is probably what I put, but again I don't actually measure anything. It's enough to make it start to get a creamy "sauce", but you can plainly see what you are eating. Salt to taste of course.

I actually can't be too sure on how much rice I put, but it looks like about 2/3 to 3/4 of a cup dry. The amount of water is like usual - 2 to 1 ratio over the rice, which I just guestimate since I cook rice nearly every day. Always seems to be the right amount :) Cook on low stovetop or nuke it for 15-18 mins, then let stand with the cover on for a few minutes - it will be so hot it cooks the rest of the way.

Anyway, that's usually about it. Generally this would take about 40 mins total for more than one person should eat at once.

Well, for what it's worth, I'd DEFINITELY leave out the fungi. Toxic like you would not believe, and with a compromized gut, eating such doesn't seem very good. I say add in whatever you like, as long as it's not bad for you :)

    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
    • Best Foods or Hellman's on the East Oast is Gluten free.  You can make your own too!  Easy!   http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mayonnaise-recipe I buy any brand of sugar.  
    • Are you sure you do not have fractures?  I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!!   Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease.  😡  Consider a bone scan.
