Today’s Recipe and Location: Broccoli Wild Rice Casserole
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
The word broccoli comes from the Latin word for arm or branch. That makes a lot of sense to me because I always thought that it looked like little trees with full branches. I did learn that broccoli can either be green or white. Who knew? White broccoli. If there really is such a thing – then my grocery stores don’t carry it!
Calorie wise – this is a no brainer. One cup of broccoli has only 31 calories. It is filled with Vitamin C – like 135% of the daily value, and about 11% of Vitamin A.
