This casserole definitely fits the bill as comfort food. It has a rich taste that you can (and will) keep piling into your mouth. Unlike most comfort food, however, this casserole is jammed packed with veggies and all-good-for-you ingredients. So feel free to go back for second, third, and forth helpings!
Vegetable Casserole (Paleo)
1 cauliflower, chopped into florets
2 tbsp ghee
1 lb green beans, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, chopped
1 cup raw carrots, coined
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking dish.
Place cauliflower into a pot with water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender. Drain and transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Add in ghee and blend until cauliflower is at a mashed potato-like consistency. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir all together.
Spread the casserole ingredients into the baking dish. Place in the oven for 40 minutes. Let cool before serving.
