Rice with broccoli and Parmesan is an appetizing side dish that can make every dinner a little special.

  • In a large pot, pour 2 cups of water and 1 cup of rice, and put a lid over it. Place the dish on high-heat and bring the water to a boil. Afterwards, turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 12–15 minutes, until the rice absorbs all the excess water. Once done, remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for an extra 10 minutes, without removing the lid.

  • Chop the broccoli florets and bell pepper while the rice is cooking. Slice them into medium slices. Another important step is to mince the garlic clove.

  • When everything is cooked and chopped, place all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together the rice, butter, minced garlic, bell pepper, broccoli, and grated parmesan. Incorporate the dish thoroughly until well combined.

  • Take the parmesan cheese and cut it in half. Use a grater to shred it. After that, place the grated cheese in a separate small bowl. Season the parmesan with a pinch of black pepper to bring out the flavor.

  • Serve the delectable dish on a beautiful plate and sprinkle some leftover parmesan on top. Enjoy!


  • If you prefer dairy-free products, try substituting the butter with coconut butter, nut butter, or even olive oil. By doing so, the side-dish might slightly change its taste. 

  • For a more cheese dish, add 1.5 ounces of cheddar cheese. Note that it is a good source of calcium, one of the most important nutrients for promoting bone health. 

Bon Appetit!
