Preheat your oven to 350°. Start the rice by placing 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the rice. Cover and lower the heat to #3. Let cook for 20 minutes.

In another saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Steam the broccoli crowns for 5-8 minutes. Drain and set aside.
