Make this garlic cheddar broccoli rice and thank me later! Here’s another way to add some variety to your rice.  The recipe assumes that you’ll be cooking a fresh pot of rice, but if you already have about 3 to 4 Cups of cooked rice on hand, you can skip to step where you sauté the veggies and then add the rice and cheddar.
