broccoli, cheese and rice casserole

This is a great casserole for a cold wintry night. Of course I can’t tell you that from experience right now because it was a warm and humid 76 degrees the night we enjoyed this. But I can imagine that if we ever get cold winter weather this would be the perfect side dish to any meal! It’s lightened up a bit with brown rice, fat free milk and light cheese. Give it a try!


recipe adapted from: 

1 c. uncooked instant brown rice

1/2 c. chopped onion

1/4 c. fat-free milk

4 ounces light Velveeta

2 tbls. butter, softened

1 (10.75) can condensed fat-free cream of chicken soup

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and spoon into a 2-quart casserole. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
