Ashley has always loved my cheeze and broccoli soup. She requests is frequently and receives it rarely. There was a recent request for the dish; since I did not want to make it, I offered a fun compromise. Cheezy rice with broccoli soup.
I used a cheezy sauce recipe that I have been working on to boil into the rice. It really gave it a risotto like flavor and consistency. It was really creamy and rice.
I also made a broccoli cream soup to have with the rice. It was a simple roasted broccoli, pureed with some almond milk and spices. The dish was a hit with Ashley., she loved the rice. I am sure I will get requests for the rice going forward.
