Time to table: 45 minutes prep, 30 minutes bake time
Modifications: I steamed the broccoli just using a steamer basket and then chopped it even more because I like tiny pieces of broccoli and it appears Annie does too. Only needed 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. I think our bag of broccoli was maybe 16oz, not 20 but there was still plenty in there.
Servings: This makes a ton – filled a 13×9 pan. I’d say it would easily serve 6-8. We ended up freezing half of it for some other time, and still had enough for a lunch too.
Notes: This was pretty time consuming. Brown rice takes a long time to cook, and making a cheese sauce takes awhile as well. It’s certainly healthier than the original, and wasn’t particularly difficult, but it wasn’t a quick weeknight meal by any means. We did all like it quite a bit, so I found it worth the effort – really any meal that gets Annie to love broccoli is a win in my book.
