Brown Rice Mushroom Casserole 

 Warm, inviting, happy food. That’s how I would describe this casserole. Super easy to assemble, and a savory palate pleaser. You’ve got fiber and protein and calcium and lots of flavor, so you and your body should be quite content. I hope you’ll enjoy this, either as a simple side dish or a light meal!
