I made this dish on Easter Sunday. I enjoyed the fact that it was quite easy to make. On the down side, it didn't quite have enough flavor for us. I followed the recipe to a T, but there was an issue of when to add the can of creamed soup... the directions did not specify. I added it when I mixed the broc, rice and cheese together just before baking. I will most likely make this again, but I will probably alter it slightly. (Made for PAC 2014)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1) In a medium pot over medium heat, saute the diced onion and olive oil until the onion is soft and translucent.
  2. 2) Add the rice and continue to stir for 2-3 minutes, or until the rice also looks a bit translucent.
  3. 3) Add the chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 40 minutes with a lid covering the pot.
  4. 4) While the rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. 5) Thaw the broccoli in the microwave until it is just slightly tender (it will cook further in the casserole).
  6. 6) When the broccoli is thawed, drain any water, then add it to the rice mixture.
  7. 7) Mix in 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, then transfer the mixture to a casserole dish. Top the mixture with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese.
  8. 8) Bake for 30 minutes, then serve.
