Cheesy Brown Rice Gratin with Zucchini and Eggplant


I wouldn’t say rice is my favorite grain; I do love it with Asian food but it doesn’t make a very regular appearance in my weekly menus. A couple years ago my kids tried the traditional cheesy broccoli rice casserole during the Holidays and loved it. When I saw this dish, Cheesy Brown Rice Gratin…
