Eat More Broccoli
My rice cooker has a steam tray, so it takes only a minute or two to wash and chop some broccoli to add when I'm making a meal with rice. Steamed broccoli will keep for a few days, so if I make extra rice, I'm 2/3's of the way to a meal with the leftovers. All I need is some protein.
In this case, I used fresh hot Italian sausage, which I like because it adds more flavor than other options, and even makes a little of its own gravy. Just cook the sausage, slice it and toss in the broccoli, and you're done! Eat it with rice, other grains, pita bread or a tortilla.
