Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Rice Cups Recipe

Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Rice Cups RecipeCheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Rice Cups is an easy, kid-friendly meal I’ll sometimes throw together when I have left-over broccoli or cauliflower on-hand that I need to use up.  It can be prepared with thawed-out frozen veggies, as well.


2 cups brown rice

5 oz chopped broccoli florets

5 oz chopped cauliflower

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup Ranch Dressing

3/4 cup cheddar cheese, divided

1/2 tsp salt

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Prepare brown rice.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F while allowing rice to cool, slightly.
  3. While rice is cooling, mix all remaining ingredients in a large bowl (set aside 1/4 of the cheese)
  4. Add rice into ingredient mixture and stir to combine
  5. Spoon mixture into a well-greased 12 cup muffin tin
  6. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top
  7. Cook for 25 minutes until tops start browning slightly and edges start getting crispy.

    I like recipes like this that “hide” veggies because I have one that doesn’t care for veggies unless it’s hidden. Would love for you to linkup at the Let’s Get Real Blog Hop.

    These look great. I would have never thought to use ranch dressing. I’ll have to give them a try.
