get your greens

So my husband and I try our best to eat healthy - sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail.  We are always looking for yummy ways to get in our raw veggies but I can’t lie, we are both kind of picky.  Well, last night we succeeded in eating a healthy, easy and delicious meal! I originally found this recipe here and we loved it so much, I had to share.  Matt doesn’t seem to consider anything a “meal” without a meat so we added chicken and rice for some more substance and it was perfect!

What you need:

2 bunches broccoli, diced
1 cup asparagus, diced
1 cup fresh spinach
1 slice Swiss cheese
1 slice Provolone cheese
2 slices Mozzarella cheese
1 can cream of celery soup
1 cup skim milk
1 cup organic chicken, cut in small pieces (optional)
1 cup brown rice
1 tbsp garlic powder (you could substitute garlic salt too)
Salt to taste (we like Sea Salt)
2 tbsp grated Parmesan for garnish

your skin will love you for eating all these green veggies


Preparation:
  
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Place broccoli, asparagus and spinach in large bowl
Shred the Swiss, Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses and add to the bowl.
Add rice, soup, milk, garlic powder, and salt to taste.
Mix gently and pour into a large casserole dish.
Add chicken and spoon in evenly.
Baked covered for about 35-40 minutes.
Take out, remove cover and add parmesan for garnish.






add milk slowly and stir as you are adding


once you add the chicken, take a spoon and slowly mix well


yum

  
ENJOY!

This is also a GREAT way for all you moms out there looking for easy and scrumptious ways to get your kids’ their green veggies.
