Let's Make It
1. Steam the broccoli about 6 minutes. Prepare the rice and spread evenly over the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the broccoli over the rice and set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the margarine in a medium skillet 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 powder, onion powder, 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.
3. Bake for 15 minutes. If desired, place pan under broiler for a few minutes until the sauce is brown and crunchy.
