1/2 cup rice ( rinsed)

1 cup broccoli

1 1/4 cup water

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 seasoning salt (optional)

Pepper to taste


  1.  In a small pan with lid ( or single serve pressure cooker) add in the ingredients to the container. Stir to combine. Turn heat to medium and cover with the lid.  Let cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking and burning, until the rice is tender to you your liking. remove to a bowl and top with parsley.
  2. If you are using a single serve pressure cooker or rice cooker add all the ingredients to the base container and stir. attach the lid and let time it for  10 to 15 minutes or until the rice is tender.  Be careful opening the lid to the container as the contents are hot. If you are using a pressure cooker please release the steam/pressure before opening the lid to your device. Use an oven mitt or tongs to safely release the pressure. They contents will burn you.
  3.  When the rice is ready just spoon into a bowl or container and eat when ready or take along with you.
