    What a lucky (and pampered) boy Joe is to be on the receiving end of this healthy feast! Your wonderful casserole is exactly the sort of homey, satisfying dinner we welcome around my house too. Zucchini, mushrooms, parmesan, and basil? Perfect!

    mmmm! I wish my husband loved brown rice. He loves rice, but the white fluffy kind! This looks fantastic though!

    Yes — cooking what he likes is what my blog is about, “Gluten-Free Food That Even My Husband Likes.” I love the smile on his face, and better yet when it’s good for him. :-)

    Travel food can be tough especially when one is working and not in full control. I know Joe loved coming home to this meal. That Zucchini Brown Rice Gratin looks divine. :-)

    I have so many zucchini from the garden this year a new way to cook it will be wonderful!

    I am so making this! My husband loves any type of gratin! I do not know what is wrong with me lately, but I am obsessed with making everyone’s recipes but my own! Not good for my poor neglected blog or app, LOL!

    Oooo, love the zucchini and brown rice combination. I might even try it with wild rice. Good idea, since the farmers’ market is *full* of zucchini right now!

    Would it be OK to post this photo and link on my new site, GlutenFreeFeed.com? It is kind of a photo essay of gluten-free recipes (from blogs)…Sort of like Tastespotting, only gluteun-free. Thanks :)

    @Jenn/CinnamonQuill, You can absolutely post the photo. Thanks for asking. Can you send me a link when it’s up?


    Jenn/CinnamonQuill Reply:


    Thank you! It is visible now at the main page, GlutenFreeFeed.com and here is the full-page:


    Thanks; the site is still a work in progress, but I’d love to feature more of your posts, too :)

    I made this yesterday, and it is SOOOOO delicious! I’ll have to figure out what to make it with once the zukes are gone. This is a KEEPER!

    @Carbzilla, Thanks for sharing that with me. I think you could put any veggie in there…even spinach would be fabulous.

    Printed this recipe as soon as I saw it as I was in the mood for some comfort food. My daughter saw the recipe on the counter on her way to work in the morning and couldn’t wait to get home for dinner! Delicious, thanks again Amy!

    @Posy, Thank you for coming back to let me know you loved it. :) You made my day.

    Aw, a dish made with love is the best dish of all! This sounds delicious…and I’m with your hubs…something about that delicious, nutty, chewiness of brown rice that makes me smile, too. Thank you for sharing this with us at Two for Tuesdays this week!! :)

    Isn’t it amazing the power of food? It can make people feel special and loved. This rice gratin would definitely make me feel special. It looks so comforting and delicious.

    Hi. What can sub the heavy cream with to make it nondairy?


    Amy Reply:

    @Anna@Green Talk, Have you tried Mimic Cream? I’ve used it in scones and it works great. I haven’t used it in a savory dish, though, so I can’t promise it will work.

    @Alex@A Moderate Life, It’s a bob, not a pixie. That might be next. I used to wear it that way for years…it looked great. I’ll put a pic up soon.

    Another great dish! The pan was empty with the entire family fighting over the 1/4 cup that was left for lunch. My 8 yo who is very particular about his food won the lunch lotto. The child does not like squash, onions, mushrooms, or brown rice. That is how good this dish is!!
    Thank you so much for this.
