Cheddar Broccoli Rice

We all know that broccoli can be eaten raw but if you cook it will give you a better texture and you can also add more flavor to it. But what I like about this tasty vegetable is that it can really be cooked in so many ways steamed, blanched, sauteed even roasted and if your using any of these methods you can add a little bit of lemon , butter and a dash of salt and pepper to make it a very tasty side dish and that's why I'm talking about broccoli today because it pairs well with almost anything even cheese and if you have some rice it will make a great pairing for a broccoli rice and cheese casserole and when you have items that work together like this they will round out any meal.

talking about the casserole when making one some people stay away from casseroles because thy are worried about cooking the rice......Let me say this there is nothing wrong with instant rice all it is rice that was pre-cooked then dehydrated o it can cook ore rapidly and it also helps you speed up the cooking time because raw rice can take 20 minutes or longer when instant rice takes about 10 minutes or less because it has been pre-cook and all it needs now is to be is re-hydrated and it comes out just fine.

Now I know we are talking about a casserole with these two great products but the other product that pulls it together is some sharp cheese and to me it's very under rated in the cheese department to it has that intense nutty but tangy flavor that is just enough to complement any great dish......all I can say if you put all of these great ingredients together you will have a casserole that will make you want to come back for more so go ahead and get in the kitchen and try this tasty recipe today.
