Last week I wanted to do something different for dinner. As I was sitting on the couch I thought of using rice to make a crust for a meat and veggie mixture pie. This is what I came up with. Hubby says it is a "keeper" recipe.
20 oz pkg Ground Turkey
1 can cream of broccoli soup (ignore the second can in the picture, I thought I was going to need it)
3 cups raw broccoli
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
I made extra rice because I wasn't sure exactly how much it was going to take. Half of this would probably do. This is how I make my rice.
Place 4 cups cold water in sauce pan.
Add 2 cups rice, 2 Tbs butter, 2 tsp salt.
Bring to a boil.
Once it is boiling, stir once, cover with tight fitting lid, turn stove to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
While the rice was cooking I fried up the turkey and minced onion. I do not measure the minced onion, I just sprinkle a whole bunch on, as you can see in the following picture. I also sprinkled on some ground pepper and garlic.
At the same time cook the broccoli by putting it in a pan with some water. Bring the water to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
When the turkey is fully cooked, drain grease if necessary.
Add 1/2 cup cheese
Add cooked, drained broccoli and stir it all together.
When rice is done it will be nice and sticky. Allow it to cool off for a few minutes and then press enough into a pie dish sprayed with cooking spray to form a crust.
Add meat mixture.
Sprinkle with more cheese.
Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
