Easy Broccoli Rice
Broccoli rice transforms into a warm, savory, and fluffy side dish. It's an easy and delicious way to sneak more greens into your meals.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 head broccoli washed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 shallot finely diced
- 1 clove garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
Slice the broccoli head in half and use a knife to remove all the florets.
Remove the woody parts from the broccoli stalk using a y-peeler. Then chop the stalk into 1 inch pieces.
Place all broccoli pieces into a food processor and pulse until the it's broken up into tiny rice-sized pieces. I recommend placing the stalk pieces into the food processor first, so they'll be chopped up more.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan and sauté the shallot and garlic for one minute.
Add the broccoli rice to the pan and sauté for another 3-4 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
- This recipe yields about 2-3 cups of broccoli rice, depending on the size of your broccoli head.
