Cheesy Potato Broccoli Casserole

The title say it all, all my favorite foods in one dish. Only this is a healthy version. We are using frozen fat free hash browns, our vegan cheese sauce and frozen broccoli. You can also use frozen rice cauliflower to up the non starchy component if your following the Starch Solution and your doing 50/50 plates this will end of being 50/50 all in one dish. How great is that.

Making this for your meal prep in a big 9 x 13 pan is great, you can have it for breakfast or as a side dish throughout the day. It only takes a few minutes to put together, bake for 25 minutes and then keep it in the fridge and take what you need and warm it up. What could be easier.
