Zesty Broth Rice

I have been trying to get better at making sides with dinner. I like to cook, but I am also kind of lazy.... I will make the main meal... and yea... that is about it. :) So, I have been trying to get better and while trying to get better, I made a really yummy rice recipe. All you need is...

1 cup White Rice
1 can Broth (chicken or veggie, I used veggie)
Green Onions
Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing
1/3 cup Asiago Cheese (optional)

1. Put the amount of rice that you are wanting in your rice cooker. Put in broth, NOT WATER. Add broth 2 to 1 with the rice (meaning... 1 cup rice = 2 cups broth). Add in 1/2 cup of Italian dressing, and if you are making more less than 1 cup rice, then just add the amount you think.

2. Once rice is done put into bowl. Now add green onions, about 3 full stocks. Also add asiago cheese (desired amount) and some more Italian dressing, just enough to make the rice have a more wet, fluffy, texture.

3. DIG IN!

This was a big hit with my husband and was a yummy simple side. I am not a huge fan of rice and I was gobbling this up. So, hopefully you will all enjoy this as much as we did.


  1. This sounds good. My mouth is watering. I love simple, tasty recipes.

  2. My kids love rice cooked with stock (broth) instead of water -but I've never added dressing to it before - I'll have to try that. P.S. Adding stock instead of just water to rice also makes an amazingly yummy variation on couscous too.

  3. That sounds really good. I've thought about getting a rice cooker - do you like yours, and if you do, what kind is it?

  4. You should make a recipe book seriously. You have the best recipes!

  5. I love rice, it is a staple in our house. i am just as bad with side items, especially when i am pregnant, it is all i can do to put a real meal on the table. well first of all i freeze EVERYTHING. but i use frozen veggies and beans and sometimes i cook 2x as much so we can use it a few days later and i dont have to put forth the effort again.

  6. We always eat rice. I never thought of putting Italian dressing on it. Sounds yummy. I am going to try this one, thanks.


  7. This looks delish! I love rice, so I'm sure I'd love this. And I love that it doesn't use any meat...I'd eat a whole bowl of this for dinner. :) I usually don't like rice made with broth (weird, I know), but I think the dressing would change my mind!

  8. That sounds so good---I definitely want to try it!

    I gave you an award--stop by my blog to pick it up! :)

  9. My husband is Brasilian, so rice is a staple at our house. I never thought to cook it in broth! That should make a nice variation from the same old rice we eat all the time (well, that my family eats- I can't have rice. 'tis a shame).

  10. I haven't even had breakfast yet and my mouth is watering.. off to the kitchen!!

  11. The italian dressing sounds like a wonderful touch. thanks for the idea
