Vegetarian Supper Casserole Or a Great Side Dish

This is a casserole that my Mom use to make when I was child. She used the meat version for a one pot supper. I like this the veggie way for a meatless supper but I will admit with burger it is hard to beat. I try to add healthier meals to my diet & this casserole is a GREAT WAY to do just that! If you do not like any of the vegetables listed just leave them out or substitute with a vegetable you love!

Layer the below ingredients, in the order given,  in a deep casserole dish that you sprayed with Olive Oil based cooking spray or wiped a teaspoon of Olive Oil over the surface

4 Medium Potatoes Pared & Sliced Thin
4 Medium Carrots Pared & Sliced in Thin Circles
1 Cup Heaping Frozen Corn
1/2 Cup Raw Rice White or Brown
Sprinkling of Sea Salt, Greek Seasoning, White Pepper, Parsley Over those layers.
Continue with the next layers:
2 Medium Onions Sliced Thin
1/4 Head of Cabbage Sliced Thin
1, 8 OZ. Can Sliced Mushrooms
1, 28 OZ Can Pureed Tomatoes
Sprinkle with more of the seasonings & sprinkle about 2 TBS. of water over the top. Cover with a tight lid & bake in a 350 degree oven for 2 hours. Serve with a hot crusty roll or as a side dish with any meat or fish.

FOR MEAT LOVERS ! Take 2 LBS of Ground Beef or Turkey or Chicken layer 1/2 the meat after the layer of corn & the other 1/2 over the layer of cabbage . My Mom used to make this with the meat for a one pot supper.'
FOR CROCK POT : layer as given & cook on low all day YUM !

Serves 5 to 6 as a vegetarian meal, or 8 people as a side or with meat added as a main dish!
