Tilapia Broccoli Rice Casserole
I know I mainly post paleo recipe, so please don’t hate me for posting another one with rice! I’m like 80/20 paleo because when I only have about 15 safe foods and one of them is rice, I have to eat it so that I don’t keep losing an insane amount of weight.
So anyways, the Food Blogger Challenge ingredient this week is rice, hence the rice recipe. I actually used cod when I made it, but titled the post tilapia because, well, it sounds better than Cod Broccoli Rice Casserole. You can really use any mild fish that you want.
To keep my rice moist I poured some bacon drippings over the casserole before putting it in the oven. You could also use melted coconut oil, olive oil, butter, or ghee if you want. It’s not necessary, but if you don’t use it, your rice may get a bit crunchy and dry. Just sayin.
2 cups uncooked (4 cups cooked) brown rice
1 ½ lbs tilapia – Any mild white fish would work. I actually used cod because my store didn’t have fresh caught tilapia this week.
16oz (1lb) broccoli, chopped
garlic powder to taste
mustard powder to taste
Opional Mix-Ins – bacon, cheese, tomato
Optional Toppings – cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the fish into little pieces, then cook it on the stove for about 3 minutes. I used the same pot as I made the rice in.
Mix all ingredients together in a 9×13 casserole dish.
- Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the broccoli is cooked through.
