Mediterranean casserole

Sometimes... I don't feel like cooking too much. So I decided to make this simple dish getting most of the ingredients from brown rice already had in the refrigerator, a can, a couple of jars, and one container. This meal is also nutritious, and delicious! 


  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 pkg (10 oz) frozen spinach
  • 1 jar (12oz) roasted peppers, drained, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 4 oz homemade vegan cheese or store bought
  • herbs
  • 1 jar (8 oz)marinated artichoke hearts

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread the rice on the bottom of a 2 quart casserole covering with the vegetable broth. Top with half of the spinach, peppers, olives, and cheese. Spread the remaining rice and spinach.

Drain the artichokes and reserve the marinade. Place them over the spinach and top with the remaining peppers, olives, and cheese.

Pour the artichoke marinade (Casserole can be made ahead at this point. Cover and refrigerate).

Cover and bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
