  • 1/4 cup olive oil divided
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 cups cooked wild rice
  • 1/4 cup to 1/3 [homemade | https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/homemade-harissa-spicy-red-pepper-sauce/] or store-bought harissa
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli
  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen spinach thaw and squeeze dry if using frozen
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped + more for garnish
  • good pinch of salt + pepper
  • 4 ounces gruyere cheese shredded
  • 2 ounces gouda cheese shredded
  • 5 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons pistachos chopped


  • Grease a 2-3 quart casserole dish. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat a very large skillet (one big enough to fit all of the rice + spinach) over medium-high heat. Once hot add 2 tablespoons olive oil, the onions and garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the onion is soft and lightly caramelized. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooked wild rice, harissa (I used 1/3 cup), frozen broccoli, spinach, dill, cilantro, salt and pepper. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and mix well to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle the cheeses over the casserole and then add the prosciutto. Bake the casserole for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the prosciutto is crispy.
  • Sprinkle the casserole with fresh cilantro and chopped pistachios. Serve!


*To make this casserole into more of a meal, serve with poached, fried or hard boiled eggs.
