Brown Rice and Cheese Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Dotalee

Found this in a health food cookbook 30 years ago. Everyone loves it. Don't leave out the tamari sauce. It is a key ingredient. I like it because it's a good meatless meal. The cheese and nuts provide the protein. It's really good served with applesauce and a side veggie such as broccoli

Oh boy, I loved this! Great meatless meal with lots of flavor. Used homemade whole wheat breadcrumbs and reduced-sodium soy sauce, no other changes. Loved that the top got nice and crunchy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
