Soybean/Rice/Cheese Casserole

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by krjb1999

This recipe is a modified version of the Vericheesy Casserole found in the Original Moosewood Cookbook. I make this casserole in a double batch and freeze lunch size servings all year round. This also works well as a stuffing for a small pumpkin or squash for a vegetarian Thanksgiving main dish (Optionally add nuts to give the stuffing more crunch).

A good start, but I will be making changes for next time. It was going very well, until time to add the soy sauce. I thought twice about it, but wanted to make the recipe as written. The 2 tbls was too overpowering, and dominated the whole casserole. Next time, I will use a sharp cheese unstead of mozarella and leave out the soy sauce all together. I also think using 2-3 green onions in place of the regular onions would be tasty. The savory spices are good in this recipe.
