Broccoli and Greek Rice Recipe

Hello!!! I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Thanksgiving, which is just a few days away.  Since it is a American Holiday that means that here in NL it is a normal working day and everyone I know will be working. 🙁 What I decided to do is to celebrate Thanksgiving a bit later this year, this of course would be nice if I am able to find Turkey in the market in my area. (which is close to impossible)  If not it doesn’t really matter we will still be celebrating with a few side dishes, appetisers, salads.

I guess you might have noticed that the featured image I have posted is what the dish looked liked before baking, right??  Well, this is what happened, everything was going smoothly I had finished topping the Soufflé with the breadcrumbs, and as I picked up the baking pan and was heading for the oven that’s when it happened I DROPPED IT!!!  Yep, it just went PUFFF!!! POUW!!! BAM all over the kitchen floor 🙁



All that work and it was on the floor ufffff 🙁  so, I sat down for a few minutes and just looked at it and well got upset and frustrated but then I noticed that Charlie who was in the living was heading towards me.  So, I had to get up and clean the mess up before he headed over and started to who knows maybe eat it????  But as I was starting to  get up what he actually did was just sat next to me and we were both looking at the mess on the floor. 🙂 So, eventually I started to clean up and  I could see him stretching his neck, a few sniffs here and there, a few licks,  but he is such a good dog he sat there watching me the whole time without making a move. 🙂

So, I am only human, and well these things do happen to all of us.   I will definitely make this recipe very soon and I do hope the second time around I do not drop it.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 Broccoli Head (chopped)

1 1/2 cups Long Grain Rice

1 cup Vegetable Broth

1/4 cup Heavy Cream

2 Fresh Scallions (diced)

2 cups Parmesan Cheese

The next step is to add in the broccoli and stir very slowly.  Place the mixture in a baking pan and top with the breadcrumbs and cheese.  Bake at 180 degrees or until golden brown.

    Last week, I dropped a tray full of cookies into my freezer. They fell underneath the drawer so I had take out the drawer and its contents in order to retrieve my cookies and the tray. Lol 😂 Your recipe sounds great and I’m glad that you posted it because it would be worth making. Yummy!
