Easy Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Recipe
I found this recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens Website. It was supposed to be a side dish, but it was Sunday after church, when we realized that we had no meat in the house. So, we made this and ate it with toast. Pretty tasty!
What you need:
- Broccoli, I used about 2/3 of a cup. Cut them into little pieces. Little enough that they can steam quickly. Discard all of the stems.
- Minute Rice - 1 cup
- water - 1 cup
- salt - 1/4 teaspoon
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (you will get a better consistency if you shred block cheddar cheese)
1. In a medium saucepan combine frozen broccoli, uncooked rice, water, and salt. Bring to boiling, stirring frequently to break up frozen broccoli.
2. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Return saucepan to burner. Over low heat, add cheese, stirring just until cheese is melted. If desired, serve in bowls and sprinkle with additional shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Makes 3-4 servings.
