A little different from what is usually thought of as broccoli and rice.

  1. Let the oil get heated in a large wide saucepan; add in the onion; cook, stirring over medium heat for 5 minutes or until tender but not browned.
  2. Stir in the rice until coated.
  3. Stir in the broth and salt; heat to boiling.
  4. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.

Delicious! Made as stated except omitted the salt. A lighter alternative to the cream soup broccoli and rice recipes, will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing.

Very good. I was looking for a broccoli rice that did not have cream soup, and this was just perfect. Instead of serving the broccoli on top of the rice, I just mixed it all together.
