Put A Carat On It: Single Girl’s Vegetarian Casserole

IMG_5484

I love casseroles, but they usual imply a certain amount of decadence that I can’t stomach alone, not trust myself to not go picking at it when cravings hit late at night. So, a single serving size casserole is always a good idea. And to keep your single lady’s waistline in check but keep an element of richness, this recipe uses shredded carrots baked into the soft and melted deliciousness of feta cheese. Feta is a strong flavor that brings enough salt to the dish without needing to add more, and the purple onion also brings with it a flavor that satisfies a non-bland palette. The result is a simple savory vegetarian casserole dish that requires only one spoon – yours!

    Hey, there’s nothing wrong with making a casserole for one! I might actually make several little casseroles and stick the extras in the freezer for future swift vegetable goodness. :)
