Kale is low in calories and high in fibre; introduce it to the family in this creamy cheesy dish. Brought to you by Uncle Ben’s.
Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Prepare the UNCLE BEN’S® 7 Grains Medley without butter and salt. Meanwhile, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in a Dutch oven. Add the onion, garlic and nutmeg. Cook for 3 minutes or until softened. Sprinkle the flour over the skillet; cook, stirring for 1 minute.
Whisk in the broth, milk and apple juice; bring to a simmer. Stir in the kale, butternut squash, chickpeas, cooked rice, Swiss and Parmesan cheeses until heated through.
Transfer to a greased 9 x 13-inch (3 L) casserole dish. Melt the remaining butter; toss with breadcrumbs, parsley and almonds. Sprinkle over the casserole. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
