Squash and Kale Casserole


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 of a medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 6 cups finely chopped kale (about 5 ounces)
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups of 1/2-inch diced yellow squash (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 cups of 1/2-inch diced zucchini (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 cups frozen brown rice, thawed
  • 1 cup grated Swiss
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Cooking spray


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally until just browned and soft, about 5 minutes. Add the kale, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook until the kale is bright green, about 2 minutes. Add the broth and continue to cook until the kale is wilted and most of the broth are absorbed, about 5 minutes more. Add the squash, zucchini and 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss to combine with the kale. Continue cooking until the squash begins to soften, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mayonnaise.
2. Toss the cooked vegetables, brown rice, cheeses, 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs and the egg in a large bowl until mixed. Spray a 9-inch square or 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread the mixture in the bottom of the casserole and top with the remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Bake until the squash and zucchini are tender and the top is browned and crisp, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
3. Make-Ahead Tip: Freeze the baked casserole for up to 2 weeks. Cover with foil and reheat at 350 degrees F until hot, 35 to 45 minutes.
