Garlic Broccoli Rice

Last updated: March 2022

We eat a lot of fresh broccoli at my house and I have always wanted a recipe for the leftover stems. I know what you’re thinking. Of course, the dietitian would like this dish. But hear me out! This is DELICIOUS! Simple, healthy and full of flavor. Try it as a side to your grilled chicken for dinner, or even as a rice replacement. It does not disappoint.
