While Wild Rice Casserole can certainly be a scrumptious side to your holiday meals, it can shine as the main entrée for a Meatless Monday. Wild rice contains protein and fiber on its own, but when combined with beans like the cannellini beans in this wild rice casserole, you are left with a complete protein! That means this vegetarian casserole will keep you full for hours. It makes a great leftover lunch the next day or two as well 😊
Why (the science): Wild rice, which is actually not rice but rather a grain, contains twice as much protein and just as much fiber as brown rice!
