Broccoli Rice Wedges
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is nice main dish served with grilled fresh prawns, and a tossed green salad.
1 bunch (about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds) fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup freshly sliced mushrooms
1-1/2 cups hot cooked brown or white rice
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, or other cheeses as desired
1 egg, whisked
1/4 teaspoon paprika (try the smoked paprika!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In glass or ceramic bowl, arrange broccoli pieces. Cover with a plate or a lid. Cook in microwave 5-6 minutes, or just until tender. In meantime, whisk eggs in another batter bowl, adding salt, pepper, cheese, flour and sliced mushrooms. Set aside.
For the crust: In a bowl combine rice, cheese, egg and paprika. Press over bottom and sides of 9 inch pie dish or other casserole. Arrange cooked broccoli over rice mixture. Spoon in the filling. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until filling is set and starting to brown nicely. Serve!
