INSTRUCTIONS

Steam broccoli and cauliflower: In a large pan (I used a Dutch oven), steam your broccoli (one head, cut into florets) and cauliflower (one head, cut into florets) together. Add a small pinch of salt and submerge each floret in about 1 inch of water. Adjust the heat to medium and cover. Steam for 15 to 18 minutes, or until all of the florets are barely soft. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit when the broccoli and cauliflower are almost done. After taking the broccoli and cauliflower from the stove, drain them to get rid of all the liquid. Allow the vegetables to cool.

Saute spinach and onions: Put the same skillet back over medium heat and add one tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion (1/2 medium, diced) and sauté for 2 minutes after the oil is heated. Add two cups of spinach and three minced cloves of garlic. Stirring constantly, continue cooking until onions are starting to turn translucent and spinach has wilted. Turn off the heat and let it to cool.

Combine everything: Whisk together the two eggs, one cup of Greek yogurt, and 1/4 cup of milk in a large mixing dish. Mix thoroughly by stirring. Add the 3–4 cups of rotisserie chicken, 1 cup of cheese (saving some), 1/2 teaspoon of basil, 1 teaspoon of parsley, 1/4 teaspoon of red chili pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, and 1 teaspoon of salt. After giving it a quick swirl, add all of the cooked veggies and continue stirring until everything is well combined. Spread evenly in a 9×13 baking dish that has been buttered.

Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese on top and bake. Top cheese with 2/3 cup of crushed parmesan crackers. Put in the oven for thirty-five minutes. When the top of the casserole is golden brown, it’s done. To get a little more crispiness on top, I prefer to broil for an additional three minutes.

NOTES

Parmesan crisps: Readers have recommended preparing them at home: Make tiny stacks of the shredded parmesan cheese on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, or until crispy. Pinch them finely and add them to your casserole! Here are more thorough recipe directions.

Broccoli and cauliflower: If preferred, you can use frozen, steamable packs of chopped broccoli and cauliflower. One head of broccoli and one head of cauliflower should be equal to one 16-ounce bag of each vegetable (two 16-ounce bags total).
