Squash-Rice Casserole

Squash-Rice Casserole
Vegan; 1 hour 15 min prep and cook

This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light. Bruce loved it, and couldn't stop talking about it for days. While he described it to one of colleagues, it was lost in translation.... You decide, kids might like this due to it being cheesy....

8 cups of a combination of sliced yellow squash, zucchini and butternut squash (about 2 1/2 lbs.)
1 cup chopped onion (I used a little less, about 1/4 cup)
1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
1 cup not-chick'n broth
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup Daiya cheddar cheese shreds
3/4 cups soy yogurt
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (divided)
1/4 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt (the original recipe called for 1 teaspoon)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
egg replacer for 2 eggs (follow instructions for what you use/have on hand)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain; partially mash with a large fork or potato masher.

3. In a large bowl, combine squash mixture, rice, cheddar cheese, soy yogurt, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and egg replacer in a bowl; gently stir. Spoon mixture into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast and bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
