Broccoli Rice

Here's a fast and easy dish that will get your children to eat their broccoli and celery.  Although "Cheez Whiz" may not be the most nutritious choice, kids dig it.  The Cheez Whiz can always be replaced with any real melted cheese.  Still not a true cheese, I prefer using Velveeta.  Give your little ones a double whammy of fiber by using brown rice as opposed to white.  Rice must be prepared and cooked prior to making this recipe.

Broccoli Rice
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 pkg.  frozen chopped broccoli
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c. COOKED brown or white  rice 
1/4 jar (8 oz.)  Cheez Whiz

Saute onions and celery in butter or oil until soft.  Add soup and bring to a boil.  Add broccoli.  Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add Cheez Whiz, stir well.  Add rice, fold, and heat thoroughly.
