Instead of loading this recipe with processed ingredients, we’ll be packing this casserole with lean protein and lots of vegetables. Broccoli is a source of antioxidants that prevent illnesses or diseases like mental decline and cancer. Brussel sprouts are high in vitamin C and K, important for immunity, metabolism, and the circulatory system. Spinach, on the one hand, is beneficial to controlling oxidative stress and blood pressure. It’s also known as advantageous to eye health, immunity, pregnancy, and cancer prevention. Lastly, bell peppers have anti-inflammatory properties, and carrots lower cholesterol levels.

Any healthier rice alternative like quinoa, barley, and shirataki rice will work with this recipe. However, we chose brown rice because it’s the closest thing to white rice. Plus, this whole grain is suitable for weight loss and favorable to heart health.
Cook the brown rice ahead of time so it won’t be time-consuming to make the veggies and turkey rice casserole. If turkey isn’t accessible to you, feel free to use chicken instead. Typical casseroles include canned cream of mushroom, but incorporate fresh mushrooms since we’re going for the healthy route. If you want a creamy non-dairy casserole, coconut milk is an alternative.
