Easy 5-Ingredient Garlic Roasted Broccoli Rice (ERMAHGERD!)

0 from 0 ratings

There was a period in my life where it felt like every single meal that I made for dinner was some kind of lean protein source paired with either mashed potatoes or rice. Once I switched over to following the paleo diet, I unfortunately had to give up the potatoes and rice for obvious reasons. The good news is that it was only temporary though, and it’s all thanks to recipes like this one for making easy 4-ingredient garlic roasted broccoli rice. All you have to do is blend your broccoli florets until they have the same texture as rice before you pair them with a tasty mixture of ingredients like garlic, parsley, and lemon juice. I never thought I would say this but broccoli rice might actually be even better than regular rice. Try this recipe out to see for yourself.
