How To Make my green rice

  • 1
    Medium sauce pan--put in 4 cups water--2 cups long grain par-broiled rice---1 TBSP salt.Bring to a rolling boil and then turn down heat to low/medium.Cook for 20 min.
  • 2
    Add in washed and chopped broccoli.All of the bunch or less.I like the whole bunch/unless it,s huge then I keep half back to blanch and keep in freezer for next time.I also chop up the stems/except for the bottom inch(tough).May need a small amount of water to the pot also.
  • 3
    Cook 15 min more on lowest heat setting.Taste test to see if rice and broccoli are done enough for you.If not.Scoop out into microwavable bowl and wave it about 3 min.

    Last step and the best one(dump all that sliced/diced)cheddar cheese into the bowl you want to keep this side-dish into.Sprinkle with 1 tsp. black pepper.Enjoy and say ahh!
