Recipe by Cirque
This recipe was given to me by a lovely neighbour many years ago. It was one of her favourites whenever her vegetarian daughter and her family visited. It could be adapted to use whatever vegetables are on hand. The potatoes with rice seem strange but they go surprisingly well!
- 1 cup rice
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 carrot, sliced
- 4 small zucchini, sliced
- 2 sticks celery, sliced
- 125 g mushrooms, sliced
- 2 -3 large potatoes, diced
- 4 cups cheese sauce (packet sauce is fine)
- 1 cup cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
