This was disappointing because I was anticipating something creamier and cheesier based on the description. The veggies, rice and bean are a great combination but I found it somewhat dry and bland. I may try it again with a different sauce.
Some of these comments had me a little concerned. Also, as it was coming together, I grew more skeptical. Except for the onions, mushrooms, garlic, and oregano sauté – that smelled delicious.
Once I poured it into the 3 QT baking dish, I couldn’t wait to get this into the oven so I could eat it soon.
I followed the recipe exactly and it truly is delicious. Even my meat eater loves it. He wants me to sauté some kielbasa next time on the side for his portion. We will see.
Fantastic dish! I love how much it makes so I can reheat for more meals. I might roll some leftovers into a whole wheat tortilla wrap for a quick and easy lunch.
The flavors truly do come together so well. I love it when a meal is both nutritious and delicious. Thank you again for a 5 star recipe.
Is this safe to reheat?
Hopefully not because it makes a lot and I am here for it!
I am looking forward to the leftovers.
Of course! Why would you think otherwise?
It sounds delicious, but what could I use instead of mushrooms?
Just leave them out…
It’s not in the meal planner
Love it. Good with a squeeze of lemon
Yes. Yes. Yes. I know we add a couple tablespoons of lemon as a last step before it goes into the oven, but I definitely see how a nice squeeze just before eating would enhance the flavor too.
Thank you for the tip!
Ok.. healthy but something is missing flavor wise…it was lacking flavor..put some more pepper and tobasco which helped..don’t know what should be added
I have All ingredients!!!! I’m mm asking this tomorrow ❣️
My kids had seconds! I used pinto beans and left out the mushrooms and dill to suit their preferences. It was a little bland without the dill, so we added garlic salt after cooking. Next time will add more garlic since I’m omitting the dill. My rice was pretty wet so I only used 3/4 cup of water. We all enjoyed it.
Where can I find nutrition information?
Calories & protein per serving?
Recipe seems lokeit would be too runny
Seems like too much too much liquid (3 cups total) for 1/4 cup oat flour.
the nutritional yeast is a thickening agent…
I would eliminate the dill( not a fan) and maybe use white beans instead of kidney beans
I bought the forks over knives magazine publication. This was the 1st recipe I made and it was absolutely awful. The taste of dill was so overpowering and I only used half of the dill the recipe called for because you would need a whole plant to come up with 1/3 cup of chopped fresh dill. It is unfortunate as It was a lot of work and I think it may have tasted good without the dill. I may try it again without the dill.
I had the same issue with another recipe that called for 1 TBL of fresh dill. I like dill but it was way too much. So I just used a tiny bit and it was great! Just use this recipe and eliminate or use very tiny portion size of dill. It’s a good recipe and you’ll see after you make again 🙂
