New Recipe – Cheesy Turkey and Broccoli Rice

How many times have you gone to the kitchen to prepare lunch only to go back to working your business or doing your household chores because you didn’t know what to have? I have been in that situation before and I hate it because I usually end up with a headache or eating something that’s not good for me because I’m starving.

My son was clipping coupons for me a few weeks ago and ran across several recipes that he clipped and gave it to me. I put them in the cupboard not even giving it another thought.

Last weekend we got our Bountiful Basket delivery and inside it was some broccoli and cauliflower along with many other wonderful fruits and vegetables. We don’t eat a lot of the items we receive quickly enough and they go bad, so I’ve been learning how to freeze fruits and vegetables so we can eat them when we’re ready.

Anyway, we purchased a two pack of individual containers of Minute Rice at the store. I saw that in the cupboard today and that reminded me about one of the recipes my son had clipped for me. I grabbed the recipe and quickly realized we had everything to make it and it would take 5 minutes to prepare and cook it. Yay!!!!

I enjoyed the meal so much that I thought I’d share it with all of you today.

Cheesy Turkey and Broccoli Rice

1 container Minute Ready to Serve White Rice
1/3 cup (2 ounces) cooked turkey, chopped
1/3 cup broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
2 oz pasteurized prepared cheese product, cubed
2 tablespoons water or milk

COMBINE rice, turkey, and broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl.

HEAT on HIGH for 2 minutes. Stir in cheese and water or milk. Microwave for 1 more minute.

STIR until well blended and creamy. Serves 1

Now here is what I did with the recipe.

I had brown rice instead of white, I didn’t use the turkey, I used shredded cheese instead of block cheese, and I forgot to add the water or milk. LOL

It was awesome and I will definitely have it again because it was easy and really good. We have cauliflower and carrots in the freezer, so I may give those a try as well. I might even mix the three vegetables together for an even different taste.
