Broccoli Rice

Deb Crane


Simple and tasty side dish. Rich and creamy with cheese. What is there not to like? Reheats well too. I originally found this gem of a recipe in an old cook book called Savour with Sue, written by Sue Select, 1981. I have made a few changes over the years but to this day still make this quite often.

How to Make Broccoli Rice


  1. Cook your rice and allow to cool off. I like to cook it with chicken broth, instead of water for added flavor.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    Grease a 1 1/2 quart baking dish and set aside.
  3. In a deep sided frying pan or a large pot, saute onion and garlic in oil until translucent. Add the cream of soup, milk and cheese and over low heat, combine until the cheese has melted.
  4. And the broccoli and rice. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
    Pour into your prepared baking dish.
    Top with Italian bread crumbs (or any crumbs you like)
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes.
    Can be made the night before and baked the next day.
