This recipe is so stinkin’ easy to make, it’s feel-good delicious and it’s full of my beloved broccoli – riced broccoli, to be exact.
Have you tried riced veggies yet? Oh my gosh, I love them!
But, I’m not about to take the time or create the mess of ricing fresh vegetables on my own. Why the heck would I do that?
If you’ve been hanging around the freezer section of your grocery store over the last few months, you’ve probably seen the explosion of new ways to eat vegetables, and my favorite trend to date is riced veggies.
I love the new Green Giant Riced Veggies, especially the Green Giant Riced Veggies Broccoli. I can have it on my table in 6 minutes without any of the prep, waste, or clean-up. Hall-e-lu-jah.
Green Giant Riced Veggies come in convenient pouches and they’re not sauced or seasoned, so you can do anything you want with them! Plus, they’re a gluten-free and low-calorie food and they have up to 85% fewer calories than the leading brand of white rice.
I’ll always love rice, but I’ve been cutting way back on processed carbs this year so using riced veggies in my cooking instead has me feeling fabulously happy.
I’ve served riced broccoli as a side, and I’ve added it to soups, casseroles, omelets and panini sandwiches. And, last weekend I made this killer riced broccoli, ham and cheese quiche with it.
I added two cups of riced broccoli to my egg mixture.
Then I poured it into my pie-shell and baked it for about an hour.
And it turned out better than I even expected! Care for a slice?
