If using fresh broccoli, you must blanch it first...

Fill a large bowl with water and ice.
Put the broccoli into the pot of boiling water and allow it to boil for three minutes.
Remove the broccoli from the pot and put it directly into the ice water, making sure the broccoli is covered with the water completely.
2cook one cup of rice with two cups of water, on stove top, and choose your meat of choice, and make sure if using chicken or turkey, that its fully cooked. Most hams are already cooked.
