    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Wild and long grain rice mix 6 ounces
    Olive oil 2 teaspoons
    Brussels sprouts, trimmed and outer leaves removed 2 cups
    Green beans, trimmed 2 cups
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Part-skim mozzarella, shredded ¾ cup
    Goat cheese, crumbled 4 ounces
    Dried cranberries 2 tablespoons
    Walnuts, chopped 2 tablespoons
    Tip: Not a fan of Brussels sprouts? Substitute another vegetable of your choice.
    1. Cook rice according to package directions, but omitting salt and spice packet (if included).
    2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Cover and reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5-6 minutes. Add green beans and sauté another 2-3 minutes, uncovered. Season with salt.
    3. Layer the rice, vegetables, cheeses, walnuts, and cranberries in a baking or casserole dish. Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes, until cheese is melted.
