Mushroom & Rice Casserole

Hearty mushroom casserole with rice, sour cream, cottage cheese and spices topped with parmesan.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F (175° C). Rub a medium-large baking dish (around 9x13") with a bit of olive oil or butter and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the mushrooms in olive oil sprinkled with a couple pinches of salt. Stir every minute or so until the mushrooms have released their liquid and have browned a bit.
  3. Add the onions and cook for another 4 or 5 minutes or until they are translucent. Stir in the garlic, cook for another minute and remove from heat. Add the rice (room temperature) to the skillet and stir until combined.
  4. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream and salt.
  5. Combine the rice mixture and cottage cheese mixture in a large bowl, stir until well combined and then turn out into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Sprinkle with 2/3 of the parmesan cheese, cover with foil and place in oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 20 or 30 minutes more or until hot throughout and golden along the edges.
  7. Sprinkle with the chopped tarragon, and the remaining parmesan and enjoy.

I substituted greek yogurt for sour cream and only did 2 cups of rice with 1 1/5 cups of cottage cheese.

Ooops I just realized why it was dry I did not cook rice first...dumb dumb. It was still good, just a little dry :)

This was OK. Servings were so small we needed to eat two so we were full. It looked kind of weird in the dish also.

I love this! I cook the brown rice in low sodium chicken broth for a little extra flavor, but it's good either way! Leftovers freeze well.

My daughter made this last night & it tasted wonderful! I had the leftovers today but there wasn't very much left since my hubby had seconds. I think we will be having this quite often.

I fixed it tonight. I loved it and so did my parents (even Dad, who does not like sour cream or cottage cheese). Thanks for the recipe!
