Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole

Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

As I was making this casserole, I had my doubts about it. There was a lot of liquid and I had to cook it longer than the recipe called for. I actually did not wait for most of the liquid to evaporate, cause I was on a time crunch to get dinner served. But once I took a bite, I was shocked! The casserole had so much flavor. Even with the casserole having being a little bit too liquidy, it was very flavorful and one I will make again.

Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
1 cup white wine
2 1/2 cups half and half
2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
5 cups fresh broccoli florets
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
Cook the rice according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Lightly spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

In a medium saucepan combine the white wine and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a full boil, over high heat.

Meanwhile whisk together the half and half and Dijon mustard until well blended.

Lower the heat to medium and add in the half and half mixture. Stir until the mixture comes to a simmer and is well blended. Add in the broccoli and cook until tender crisp, about 3-5 minutes.

Remove from the saucepan from the heat and add in the rice and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until most the of the liquid is gone.

Enjoy!!!
