Broccoli Rice

Submitted by: PURESCENTSATION

Introduction

A nice, tasty way to get the kids to eat their broccoli. The cheese makes it a little bit "gooey". You could also add in cooked carrots, peppers, etc to this dish - depending on your tastes.

  • In the interest of lowering the sodium content, I used the correct amount of water and a little poultry seasoning in place of the chicken broth. It turned out very well. - 8/30/10
