Have you ever tried yellow rice in your Broccoli Rice Cheese Casserole? It makes the best Broccoli Rice Cheese Casserole I have ever had.
One day I substituted Yellow Rice for the white rice in my Broccoli Rice & Cheese Casserole. I was hoping the yellow rice would add a lot more flavor to my Broccoli Rice Cheese Casserole, and it did. It was incredibly flavorful and the best broccoli rice casserole I have ever had. We will never eat a Broccoli Casserole with plain rice again. If your children do not like broccoli, they will probably eat this broccoli recipe. You cannot taste the broccoli. The saffron in the yellow rice makes this casserole very flavorful.
An excellent way to get your children to eat more veggies is to have them help prepare them. Find a way to involve them in this recipe. My kids enjoy grating the cheese, chopping the vegetable or measuring the milk. I hope you will give the yellow rice a try in Broccoli Casserole.
