This is an awesome recipe. Nice and tasty for those cold winter nights.

As to confusion about whether it be 3 cups after cooking, that would make the most sense. It's supposed to serve 4 and generally you need 1 cup uncooked rice for 4 servings.  ;)


I really enjoy this recipe - you can easily throw in any veggies you have on hand (cauliflower, peas, etc.). This is an excellent "comfort food" and can be mixed up with more hummus/less hummus, more cheese, garlicy tomato sauce in place of the puree, more rice to stretch this casserole out for a week.... I bake at 375F.


This was okay, but not something we'll make again. The baking temperature wasn't clear in the recipe (we used 350), nor was the amount of uncooked rice to use (we used 1.5 cups).
