Cheddar Broccoli Rice (for one)

I’m kinda obsessed with this little Microwave Pasta Cooker!  I think it’s name limits its possibilities though.  It can do so much more than cook pasta!

Bill has a lot of travel coming up so I’ve been thinking about what I’ll be making for myself. Before he came into my life, I cooked for one for YEARS and always found it challenging. Now there are so many fantastic resource out there. I’m not the kind who likes to make a lasagna and eat it for a week. I need variety!

So next month will be fun with lots of experimenting! For now, enjoy this one!

On a side note, don’t try to do more rice than the recipe suggests as it will boil over and you’ll have a mess to clean up. Ask me how I know! LOL

Chicken Broccoli Rice
Serves 1

1/3 cup quick-cooking rice*
2/3 cup water
3 broccoli florets
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

  1. Place the rice and water in the Microwave Pasta Cooker, cover with the lid and microwave 3-4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the broccoli using the Food Chopper. Mix the cornstarch with the milk until the cornstarch is dissolved.
  3. When the rice is fully cooked, mix in the broccoli, milk mixture and cheese.
  4. Return to the microwave for another 90 seconds to melt the cheese and thicken.
  5. Remove form the microwave, season with salt and pepper and stir.

*If you’d like to use regular rice, cook for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
