  1. 2 cups chicken broth
  2. 1 cup long grain brown rice
  3. 1 bag (16 ounce) frozen California mix vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
  4. 2 cups cooked turkey, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  5. 2 ½ teaspoons flour
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  8. 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  9. 1 cup milk, divided (I used skim)
  10. 1/3 cup light sour cream
  11. 8oz shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large pot then add rice. Cover then turn heat down to medium-low. When rice is almost tender (about 5 minutes left to cook) add frozen vegetables on top to steam.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder with 1/2 cup milk. Pour mixture into skillet then add remaining ½ cup milk. Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, 7-10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat then add 3/4 of the shredded cheese and sour cream, and stir until smooth.
  3. Preheat broiler. Combine cooked rice and vegetable mixture with cheese sauce then scoop mixture into a nonstick sprayed baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Broil until cheese is melted then let casserole rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  1. Serves 4

Cheesy Turkey Lasagna

We’re bracing for a blizzard again in Iowa.   This has been an exceptionally cold winter, but our snowfall total has been low.  Normally, we would be thrilled about below-average snow fall.  But parts of our state experienced a drought two years in a row, so we need the moisture that snow provides. 

The snow is bringing more bitter cold temperatures with it.  But don’t worry, our turkeys will be safe and warm inside our barns.

And this Cheesy Turkey Lasagna (with spinach!) will keep you warm, as well!
