Curried Rice Casserole
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper
1-2 cups mixed vegetables and/or cooked beans
(peas, corn, zucchini, eggplant, chickpeas, etc.)
1 C brown rice, uncooked
1 1/2 cups tomatoes, diced
(fire roasted tomatoes are a pretty amazing addition)
3 1/2 cups water
2 t curry powder
1/2 t salt
Saute onion and pepper and other vegetables if they require it in a bit of oil. For peas and corn and other quick cooking veg this step is unnecessary as they will get enough time in the oven to cook them.
If using a cast iron add in all remaining ingredients to the pan. Otherwise just combine all ingredients in a glass baking dish.
Bake for 60 to 75 minutes at 375 degrees F. until the rice and veg are all tender.
