My ‘Broccoli Rice’ is not minced Broccoli. Broccoli is cooked with Rice, and with Butter. When my son was a young child, I did all sort of tricks to make him eat veggies. One trick was mixing veggies with his favourite food. He loved rice. So I often cooked rice with finely chopped up or grated veggies. ‘Carrot Rice’ is an example. And this ‘Broccoli Rice’ is really yummy, too.


4 Servings


2 cups (*180ml cup) Short Grain Rice OR Medium Grain Rice
400ml Chicken Stock *OR Stock of your choice
1 head Broccoli *cut into small florets, use thick stem for something else
20g Butter *cut into small cubes
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Salt *depending on the saltiness of the stock

  1. Wash Rice by stirring it thoroughly in water with your hand and drain the water. Repeat this a few more times until water flows through clear.
  2. Drain the rice and place it into the rice cooker’s inner pot. Add Chicken Stock, and place Broccoli on top, but don’t stir. Scatter Butter, Salt and some Pepper.
  3. Press ‘COOK’ button to start cooking.
  4. When the rice is cooked, let it steamed for 10 minutes. Then loosen and mix well.
  5. *Note: You can add a little bit of Soy Sauce, additional veggies such as peas, grated Parmesan, etc.
