Broccoli rice is a very simple dish to make, it is healthy and doesn’t require too many ingredients. I’m not good at dieting as I have mentioned before but I make sure my family and I eat enough vegetables and broccoli is one of the vegetables everyone in my house will eat with no muss no fuss.
So, in other to make broccoli more exciting especially the kiddos I always make it into rice which we all love. Broccoli rice is called broccoli rice because it was made with broccoli if you’re not a fan of broccoli you can use cauliflower.
