Cheese-y Broccoli Rice
Good afternoon Y’all!
Today is a beautiful day, isn’t it? I woke up after a night of intense dreaming, and woke up with determination to make a great day!
We have fallen out of our meditation habits for quite some time now, as life seems to busy our attention more often than not. This has honestly taken a huge toll on our mental state and energy levels, so we’ve recently been slowing down and re-thinking so the natural state of complete calm and comfort can return.
Our diet always pays the price when we fall to these mindsets, and we start to see a lot of pizza and pasta. But who doesn’t absolutely love the delectable mix of carbs and cheese smothered in sauce?
Well, upon going to the store recently- in a very good mindset- I picked up as many fruits, vegetables and greens as I thought sounded good at the time.
I needed a balance of cheese for Tyler, as any dish mentioned without cheese is un-interesting to him sometimes, so here we have an absolutely delicious cheese-y rice.
I obviously wanted mostly vegetables for dinner, so what better way to incorporate everything? After some brainstorming, ended up concocting this broccoli/carrot/cheese-y rice as a side dish to other roasted veggies and mashed cauliflower- and boy was it worth it.
It turned out so delicious that I wanted to share it today 🙂
Happy cooking 🙂
Make sure Y’all share your dishes with us here so everyone can share the love!
What You Need:
1 cup white or brown rice, cooked accordingly.
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 onion, sliced thin
1 cup milk
5 tbsp. flour
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup parmesean
1/2 cup mixed shredded cheeses
Salt&Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. garlic powder (If you like extra garlic)
1 Tbsp parsley ( or 1 handful chopped fresh)
2 tsp. Red pepper flakes
1 tsp. Oregeno
Use a pot of water and cook rice accordingly. Once done set aside and top with a few tablespoons of butter to sit.
Chop carrots, onion, garlic, parsley, and broccoli and add to a separate skillet with a tablespoon of butter.
Once the veggies are decently cooked through, but not yet soft- pour a majority of the veggies into a bowl for now, add the butter, and melt it completely. Then add the flour, and stir it into the vegetables. This should coat them in a paste-like texture.
Add the milk and combine. Once this is lightly simmering, add the cheeses.
Return the veggies to the sauce, turn off the heat, and combine!
Grab a baking pan of any style or size, but we realized smaller works best.
Layer the rice along the bottom of the pan.
Then, layer the cheese mixture evenly over the rice.
Continue layering until everything is used. add a nice layer of cheese on top, and bake in the oven at 365 degrees for about 20 minutes.
The cheese should be nice and browned when you pull this out of the oven 🙂
This tastes absolutely delicious, and provides a wonderful side dish to any meal!
But we kinda dug in and ate this as a meal itself. I even re-heated it with asparagus added!
Love You Guys! Have a blessed day.
