About This Recipe

Note by recipe author:  "Creamy baked rice and broccoli, an easy delicious side dish or light lunch with a salad and sliced tomatoes! My DD will only eat rice if cooked like this (or chinese) it is really easy, and tastes great! Good re-heated too! I have also used spinach or 1 cup of frozen peas instead of the broccoli. I think this came from a milk calander."
