This is an excellent side dish, full of broccoli, mushrooms and rice. It cooks up in about 50 minutes. The rice is not cooked when it goes in so that is why it has a long cooking time. If you have leftover cooked regular rice I would think it would be done in about 30 minutes.

Broccoli, Mushrooms and Rice Casserole

The mushrooms are optional but I ran into a great buy on them and now am putting them in everything this week. I loved them in this dish so if you are a mushroom lover don’t leave them out. I used cream of chicken soup in this but you can use any kind of cream soup you like or make a homemade cream sauce if you don’t like using canned soup.

    I found your website on Fridgg and I am so glad you posted your food photo there! I love this recipe! I am always looking for quick and easy recipes to make, sometimes because of time constraints and sometimes just out of pure laziness hehehe. Just a quick question: the rice is not pre-cooked right?
