Cheddar-Zucchini Rice

This is a very nice side dish, a beautiful and delicious variation to the famous broccoli rice au gratin. It is creamy, cheesy and yummy.  Enjoy!
-3 cups chicken broth
-1 cup uncooked white rice
-2 cups grated zucchini (if frozen, thaw and squeeze most of the liquid out)
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp pepper
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Combine the broth and rice in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a boil.  Lower the heat, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is nice and tender.  Stir once in a while.
Remove pan from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.  Mix until well incorporated.  Serve and enjoy!

I wonder if this would be good with cauliflower. I am going to experiment and let you know.
