Meatless Casserole Dish

By: Masil Nosacki

To accommodate my son's veggie diet I had to learn to prepare meatless meals. I needed a plan and found that cooking vegetarian casseroles was the easiest way to fix one main meal for the whole family. I could then satisfy his veggie diet and include meat as a side dish for everyone else.
Finding the perfect blend of ingredients in a Vegetarian Casserole proved challenging. As I tried new recipes I found some were to bland, the flavor just wasn't there. Another issue was the amount on veggie ingredients a vegetarian casserole required. Having to many vegetables in one dish was great for my son but no so pleasing to the rest of the family.
I was introduced to the Vegetarian Casserole Dish called Spanish Rice Frittata by a family friend who happened to be a Vegetarian. Boy I'm glad she gave it to me. This was just what I was looking for. The recipe called for the healthy green veggie foods my son needed but also a delicious blend of flavor my family would enjoy. This is the perfect recipe combination for both types of eating habits into one main meal. We serve this as the meatless main dish and a prepared meat on the side. It's a great recipe for both Vegetarians and also those who desire a healthy meal.
