Country Skillet Rice Casserole

  • Yield servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup water
2/3 cup uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 (10.75-ounce) can 98 percent fat-free cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the rice, reduce heat, cover tightly, and simmer 10 minutes, adding the broccoli, bell pepper, and corn during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the soup, mayonnaise, and curry in a small saucepan and place over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or until warm.
  3. Spoon the soup mixture over the rice mixture, sprinkle with the cheese and cook, covered, 1 minute to melt cheese slightly.

Cook’s Note: To save time, prep the veggies while the rice is cooking during the first 5 minutes. To thaw frozen corn quickly, place in a colander and run under cold water 15 to 20 seconds, making sure to shake off the extra liquid.
