Getting enough veggie on your plate every day can be a challenge especially when a section of most people’s plate are taken up with carbs. I made a cauliflower and chickpea curry for dinner and wanted some more green on our plate so I decided to make some broccorice. Everyone’s busy making cauliflower rice which sure is nice but I wanted some more green. So brocco rice was born. So what’s broccorice? It’s super simple and so yummy…



1 head of broccoli any size

Food processor

Cut your broccoli into medium sized florets and then steam.

Tip out any water and put the broccoli back into your pot to cool and any moisture to evaporate.

Once cool enough put the broccoli through the food processor.

Enjoy your super easy very yummy broccorice!!

brocco_rice_broccoliJohn loved the rice so much he had three helpings. This would be a great way to get some extra veggies into your kids if they are not keen on veggies. This rice can be used any time you might normally add rice to your plate or as a base for mac and cheese or in sushi or in a salad. The options are endless.

You could make any number of different types of rice; kale, parsnip, carrot, zucchini, or a combo of any veggies you like. Enjoy once you make this you’ll want to make it over and over again and it took about the same amount of time as it would for rice to cook. Are you keen?

    Great idea! I’m going to try this. I have the same dilemma in our house – how to eat more greens without being boring and bland. I think changing the texture of something can make a huge difference to its appeal. I also like the fact that you can use up a whole head of broccoli in one go – when we have it piece by piece for our dinners it feels like we’re always having broccoli
