Broccoli and Cheese Rice Casserole

 

Do you have a slow cooker?

This is what mine looks like.

 

Cute, right?

Slow cookers are handy little creatures where you throw food in, turn it on low or high, run out the door for a full day’s worth of lectures and meetings on campus, and then come home to a warm, cooked meal.

They’re pretty affordable. My mom got me mine for about $20-30 CAD at Walmart.

You can make all sorts of things in a slow cooker, including soup, chili, and this delicious rice casserole. Yum!

 

Broccoli and Cheese Rice Casserole

Makes 4-6 servings.

Ingredients:

1 lb. chopped broccoli, fresh or frozen, thawed
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup butter
1 cup minute rice, or 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
10 3/4 oz can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
1/4 cup milk
1 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tsp. salt

Directions:

1. In a pot of boiling water, cook broccoli for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside in a large bowl.
2. Saute onion in butter in medium saucepan until tender. Add to broccoli.
3. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add to the broccoli and onion mixture. Pour into a greased slow cooker.
4. Cover the slow cooker. Cook on low 3-4 hours. Make sure you don’t remove the lid during cooking, as a lot of heat will escape!!
