Broccoli Rice Casserole

This is very easy to put together and very tasty!

The recipe is from allrecipes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup uncooked instant brown rice
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 pound fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Place broccoli in a microwave-safe casserole dish, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover, and microwave until tender.
  4. Spoon rice onto a serving platter, and top with broccoli. Sprinkle walnuts and cheese on top.

Pollo Verde

Pollo Verde will now be my meal of choice for my easiest and most delicious dinner.  I even plan to serve it next time we have guests over.  With 2 ingredients, it couldn’t be simpler, but the taste is amazing!

To prepare, place chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with 1/2 – 1 jar of a gluten-free Salsa Verde.  Cook for 6-8 hours on low.  When chicken is done and tender, take it out, and shred it with a fork.  Then, put the shredded chicken back into the crock pot and mix in with the juices and salsa.

Serve in warmed corn tortillas (heated on a hot skillet until browned) and top with chopped onion, cilantro, avocado, and a squeeze of fresh lime.

That’s it!  My family loves this meal.  It’s healthy, fresh, and reminds me of street tacos from Mexico.  Enjoy!
