Awhile ago I had "pinned" this recipe for Cheesy Zucchini Rice. It sounded good, but I thought I could make it a little better :) I decided to give it a try tonight and it was awesome! Jason loved it - he almost finished off the entire thing! I think next time I might try it with quinoa instead of rice.
Cheese and Zucchini Rice
3/4 cup rice, cooked according to package
1 medium zucchini, grated
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (I used reduced fat)
1/4 cup light cream cheese
2 tbsp milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1. Cook rice as directed on package. While rice is cooking, place grated zucchini in a fine mesh strainer and sprinkle with kosher salt. This will remove excess water from the zucchini. Allow to sit while rice cooks.
