  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 6 cups spinach, fresh
  • 1 14-ounce can lentils rinsed and drained
  • 1 14-ounce can pinto or black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups brown or wild rice (cooked
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups grated old cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F

  • In a skillet, add a drizzle of olive oil and add the onion, carrot, celery and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes until soft. Then set aside. In the same skillet, add the spinach for about 3 minutes until it wilts, then cool, squeeze out the excess water, chop and add to the veggie mixture.
  • Add the lentils, pinto beans, rice, corn, basil, eggs, salt, pepper, half the cheddar and 1 cup of sauce to the mixture. Then pack into a 9×13 glass bake dish and place the sliced tomatoes on top. Add remaining cheddar.
