Number of Servings: 6


    1.5 cups uncooked brown rice

    2 TBSP vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
    1/4 cup flour
    1 cup vegetable stock
    3/4 cup water
    1 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    salt & black pepper
    1/2 cup nutritional yeast
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice

    1 TBSP olive oil
    1/2 onion, minced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3 cups chopped broccoli florets


Bring 2.5 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Add brown rice. Cover, reduce heat, and let simmer until all the liquid is absorbed (about 40 minutes).
While the rice cooks, prepare the sauce: Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook for 3-5 minutes to make a blond roux (Stir constantly to prevent it from burning). Add the vegetable stock, soy sauce, oregano, and salt & pepper (to taste) to the saucepan. Bring to a simmer and let cook until the sauce begins to thicken. Stir in the nutritional yeast and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and taste to adjust salt & pepper. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, cook until softened (about 5 minutes). Add the broccoli and continue to cook until the vegetables are tender.
Combine the cooked brown rice, broccoli mixture, and sauce in a 99-inch glass baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until completely heated through.
*Note: The sauce recipe makes enough to coat the rice and broccoli. If you want it to be really saucy, I would make a little extra sauce.
