A Quick & Easy Rice Recipe the Kids Can Help Make!
I’m always looking for ways to get my kids (and my hubby and I!) eating more healthy grains and vegetables. What better way than making them CHEESY, right?! When Minute® Rice invited us to use their quick-cooking rice in a healthy recipe, I was excited to take on the challenge. Check out the ten minute cheesy broccoli and rice recipe I came up with…
Ten Minute Cheesy Broccoli & Rice Recipe
- 2 cups Minute® White Rice
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup steamed broccoli
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup salsa
- splash of milk – if needed
Steam the broccoli. (We use steam-in-bag frozen broccoli in our house, so the first thing I did was pop the broccoli into the microwave for the six minutes that the package directed.)
Prepare the Minute® Rice, using the water, according to package directions. It only takes 5 minutes!
After the five minutes, when the rice has absorbed all of the water and gotten soft, add the shredded cheese, salt, pepper, salsa, and cup of steamed broccoli. Stir until all cheese has melted. Add a splash of milk if it’s too thick.
