Ingredients

For the rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup medium-grain white rice
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar

For the zucchini
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium zucchini, diced into chunks
1 Tablespoon lime juice
garlic salt and cracked black pepper, to taste


Bring the broth to a boil in a saucepan. Add rice and stir well. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally.



While rice is cooking, in a skillet add olive oil, zucchini, garlic salt, cracked black pepper and lime juice. Saute 5-8 minutes or until just tender.



Remove rice from heat, add the butter and cheese and mix well. Add zucchini, folding it in and cover. Let stand 5 minutes.



Serve

Notes

I love, love, love zucchini and I try to make it every way possible thru the summer when there is plenty of fresh zucchini! I also love cheesy rice! This zucchini rice was sooooo good! Everything about it was perfect! I could of eaten the entire pan! OMGosh, I can't tell you how delicious it was! If you have zucchini coming out of your ears from the garden, you have got to make this!

A dash of local for every season
