Serves: 8

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) long-grain white rice
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes
  • 1 pound (500 grams) zucchini, trimmed and cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick rounds
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into thin strips
  • 4 cups (1 liter) canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (7 mL) black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 8 cups (2 L) water to a boil over high heat. Add rice, reduce heat to medium and boil, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Set aside.

  3. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic and onion for 5 to 7 minutes or until onion is tender. Add eggplant and sauté for 2 minutes. Add zucchini, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in red peppers, tomatoes, parsley, basil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

  4. Place one-third of the eggplant mixture on bottom of greased 10-cup (2.5 liter) casserole dish. Top with half the rice. Layer with the remaining eggplant mixture and the remaining rice. Pour broth over top.

  5. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling. Uncover and place under the broiler for 1 minute.
Notes

The juice drained from the tomatoes can be substituted for the vegetable broth, or you can save it for another use.

If you're preparing this dish for chicken-eaters, you can substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth.
