Alright ya'll. After a week of failing at a couple of recipes. (Hey, we all make mistakes, right ? ;)
I have finally got a finished product for you. And I have impressed myself on this one. I constantly crave it- and I just created it yesterday. Ha.
So please, please, please, go make this ! And then take a photo of it, and share it with me! I love seeing them! #thedailykale
K. So I am always trying, pretty much all year- to come up with what I'm going to make for Thanksgiving/Christmas, for my family and my boyfriends. I am always wanting his mom to be impressed with my food, to be honest. And I love surprising people afterwards, and telling them it's vegan! I love that. So this casserole my mom used to make at thanksgiving was my f a v o r i t e. It was your simple broccoli and rice casserole with cheddar on it, but of course with her touch.
So I wanted to make something like that- then yesterday my 'cheddar' sauce was a huge fail- but I came up with this sauce after the fail. And it totally works. I just wanted it to be creamy, and yum. And thats definitely what it is now! Yay!
:: Broccoli, Brown Rice & Bechamel ::
So this is what you'll need.
2 servings. (2 large servings hehe)
2-3 Cups Lightly Steamed Broccoli.
1 Cup cooked Brown Rice.
1/4 of a Red onion, chopped.
1 large portabello
*Place all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. And yes, you got it, mix. :)
Unsweetened Almond Milk. (& make sure it doesn't have vanilla in it for whatever weird reason )
2 tbsp. Olive Oil
2 tbsp. Whole Wheat Flour
Oregano/ Garlic Powder/ Pink Salt/ Black Pepper (Optional)
After you've mixed your top ingredients. Make your béchamel sauce, which is sooooo easy it's kinda crazy. Place olive oil in sauce pan on low heat. Watch out, it can pop. :(
Then quickly add in your flour and mix with a spoon. I like using my wooden one best.
Stir until it's mixed. Take off heat and add in a little almond milk, then stir again on low heat.
Keep stirring and adding in almond milk but stirring until it's all mixed in. This takes about 5 min. You can turn up the heat a tad, also, and then add in whatever flavors you'd like. I added those in cause I love those spices :)
Now go enjoyyyyy! Happy Friday!
