  • Splash the 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil into a pan. Heat the pan to a medium heat, saute the chopped green onions and onions. Once onions are cooked, add dry rice and saute for 1 minute.
  • Next, add your wine to the pan. Let the liquid cook down for about 1 minute. Next, add 2 cups of veggie broth. Let the broth cook down while you continually stir to avoid any burning. Once the liquid has been cooked down, add 2 more cups. Continue with this process until all your liquid is gone and your rice is soft. This process should take about 20 minutes.
  • Finally, season with salt and pepper, stir in the cooked diced broccoli and cheese.
  • ENJOY!


I boiled the broccoli until soft and then diced it.
