Ingredients
10 oz. broccoli florets
2 cups white rice
1/2 cup (one stick) soy margarine
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3 and 1/2 cups boiling water
2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
1 and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
Pinch of turmeric
1 cup nutritional yeast flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of paprika

Methods/steps
Steam the broccoli about 6 minutes. Prepare the rice according to the pkg. directions. Spread the cooked rice evenly over the bottom of a 9-by-13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the broccoli over the rice and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the margarine in a medium frying pan over “low” heat. Beat in the flour with a whisk over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and bubbly. Then whisk in the boiling water, salt, soy sauce, garlic and onion powders and turmeric. Cook the sauce until it thickens and bubbles, and then whip in the yeast. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and rice; sprinkle the top with paprika and bake for 15 minutes. Place pan under broiler for a few minutes until the sauce is browned and crusty. This cheese sauce is great for lots of other things too.
