May I suggest Lady Jake's famous Stuffed Cauliflower?

1 box long grain and wild rice mix
sliced black olives
onion (chopped)
red pepper

Cook above in with rice mix adding 1/8 cup additional water.

Whole cauliflower
broccoli florets

Cut cauliflower along florets to form a top and a bottom
Lightly steam cauliflower and broccoli

Dot bottom of pan with butter
First cauliflower bottom, then rice mixture on and around bottom
Dot with butter and cover with shredded cheese (I like sharp cheddar)
Put top on bottom - cover with cheese

Place broccoli florets around the edges
Tomato wedges on top of cauliflower top (I shape them like a star)
if you use a round pan (lg. cast iron frying pan works good) it comes out looking like a wreath

Bake at 350 for approx. 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Good hot or cold. You can add whatever veggie you want to the rice mix when you cook it - I just made a few suggestions...

Last time I made it, I added shrimp sauteed in butter, lemon and garlic and it was sensational!

Looks complicated, but it's really not! AND it is delicious!!
