50. Cheesy Zucchini Rice

We tried a new recipe tonight! Only 19 more to go to complete number 50 on our 101 list!

I have a ton of recipes pinned on Pintrest and tonight we tried the Cheesy Zucchini Rice from Karly at BunsInMyOven.com.

The Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium or 2 small zucchini, grated (I used my food processor but a cheese grater would work well, too)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • splash of milk, as needed

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the rice and stir to coat. Toast the rice, stirring often, just until it starts to turn golden.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth, bring to a boil, turn heat to low, and cover.
  4. Cook, covered, for 15 – 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Remove from the heat and add the butter, grated zucchini, cheddar, and garlic powder. Stir until well incorporated. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Stir again and add salt and pepper to taste and a splash of milk if you’d like to thin out the texture a little bit.
