Cheesy Broccoli Rice

Jennifer H


My daughter hates broccoli. My daughter loves this cheesy broccoli rice. Chop the broccoli into whatever size pieces you want - super small bits or roughly chopped florets. Use whatever cheese you have on hand or to suit your taste. This is an excellent accompaniment to any protein and goes together in a snap!
