Broccoli Rice

Broccoli Rice
Broccoli Rice

This Broccoli rice is perfect for meal box for both adults and kids. Due to the health benefits of this green veggie, I try to include it in different recipes. Broccoli Rice is one of them. I cook broccoli rice more often to pack in meal box. This is a really easy to cook one pot meal. For this recipe, I use 1 cup of broccoli florets together with another cup of mixed vegetables. Therefore, the rice is flavourful with the taste of broccoli. I usually use leftover rice for this rice, so this is a great recipe to minimize the wastage in my kitchen.

Next time, try this recipe with some leftover rice, I am sure you will like the taste!
