Cheesy Broccoli Skillet Rice

This was a weird inspiration for me, as I detest broccoli. Pretty much any green veggie could be used. I don’t know what I was thinking really, but it was really good.

1 largish head of broccoli (or “crown”, some people call them *shrug*)
1/2 Cup cashews (crushed, but not pulverized. I recommend a mortar and pestle, but a freezer bag and a rolling pin or hammer (or any other heavy flattish thing) would work too)
1 can sweet corn
1 Cup brown rice
2 Cups orange cheddar (shredded)
2ish tbsp celery salt
2 tbsp ground cayenne pepper

In Wok, chef skillet or other largish frying pan, boil 2 1/2 cups water with celery salt. Add rice. When there is about 5 minutes left, in a separate pot combine corn, cashews and broccoli with 1 cup water. Cook until broccoli is done (~5 minutes), tossing occasionally. Drain. Add cheese and pepper to rice and stir in vegetable medley.

Serves 2-3. Prep time … nothing. Total time around 20 minutes.
