Brown Rice, Broccoli, Cheese and Walnut Surprise This recipe was born one night when I didn’t have too much to do. I guess the only surprise about it is that it tastes so good!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place walnuts on small baking sheet, and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until toasted.Advertisement
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in melted butter for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the rice, add the broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Place broccoli in a microwave-safe casserole dish, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover, and microwave until tender.
Spoon rice onto a serving platter, and top with broccoli. Sprinkle walnuts and cheese on top.
