This beautiful Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole calls for fresh broccoli and real cheddar cheese. No offense to anyone but real cheese is where it is. I use the boil in bag Jasmine or Basmati rice. I think they produce the best base for this casserole and are consistent every time.
The casserole is topped with crispy panko bread crumbs perfectly seasoned with garlic, parsley and oregano. Turning on the broiler for the last 30-60 seconds ensures that the bread crumb mixture turns to a beautiful golden brown. However as I have mentioned before broilers are very unpredictable so stay close by.
Did you know that broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K? Broccoli is a good carb and is high in fiber, which aids in digestion, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. So add this beautiful delicious nutritious casserole to your repertoire of great recipes. Even my tweens were gobbling this up!
