  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium zucchini grated
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk if needed


  • In a medium sauce pan add rice and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat. Cover and let rice simmer for 15-20 minutes, until rice becomes tender and most of the liquid has absorbed.
  • Once the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, stir in the grated zucchini, cheese and garlic powder. Add salt and pepper to your liking (don't skip this step. The salt will boost the flavor). Add a tablespoon or so of milk to adjust the texture if needed. Serve and Enjoy!
