Broccoli Cheddar Varieties

We simply can’t get enough of this classic combo! Take broccoli cheddar to a new level by tossing a protein into the mix. This skillet full of creamy and Cheesy Chicken and Rice is a meal that the whole family will look forward to! For those looking for recipes with a smaller yield, this Cheesy Turkey and Broccoli Rice – stuffed with fresh broccoli florets, gooey cheddar cheese, and lean leftover turkey – serves up to 2 people.  It’s so flavorful and filling that it’s hard to believe that it only takes 3 minutes to prepare. The only thing that is disappointing about this dish is that there may not be any leftovers to enjoy later!

Proper Portions

While this recipe is perfect for 1 or 2 people, you may want to use this Broccoli Cheese and Rice Soup if you’re feeding more family and friends. Although it takes 15 minutes, it’ll feed up to 6 people. And, let’s face it, it’s still a speedy dinner! No matter how many servings you’re preparing, a warm cup of soup will definitely please everyone at the table.

Kitchen Staple Substitutions

Keeping your pantry fully stocked ensures that you’ll always have quick and easy meal possibilities at your fingertips. You likely have all 4 of these ingredients on hand; however, if you’re feeling creative or simply don’t want to go on a grocery store run, feel free to tweak the recipe and use a Cooking Hack. For some inspiration, check out just a couple of ways to switch it up:

Milk: While skim milk produces a soup that some may consider a little too thin, 2% milk serves as a suitable reduced-fat option. As far as a lactose-free substitution goes, soy has the best texture for soups – just remember that this will only reduce the dairy content in the recipe as the canned soup still contains dairy.

Grains: Firstly, you can never go wrong with our most versatile grain, so white rice should be considered a pantry must! That being said, why not get creative and add another layer of complexity simply by swapping in a different Minute® Ready to Serve variety. For subtle fragrant notes, reach for either jasmine or basmati rice. Or, add a subtle nutty flavor while also effortlessly integrating more whole grains into your meals with brown rice.
