Nettle and Cauliflower Casserole

Ingredients
1 grocery bag full of nettles (like spinach, they shrink A LOT when prepped)
1 cup of chopped cauliflower
1 cup of brown rice
2 cups of veggie stock
8 oz of creme fraiche
grated Parmigiano Reggiano (or Pecorino Romano) for additional yummy-ness
salt and pepper to taste

Method
Start by prepping your nettles by basically boiling, draining and chopping.
Boil the chopped cauliflower until tender and then drain and set aside with the drained chopped nettles.
Using a good veggie stock, cook one cup of rice in a big pot until tender and all the stock is absorbed.
Turn off the heat and fluff the rice with a fork.
Add the cauliflower and nettles to the rice, as well as the creme fraiche.
Mix until combined, then add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle on grated parmiggiano and serve warm.
