Cheesy Broccoli and Brown Rice Soup

1 1/2 cups brown rice, cooked

1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp paprika

1/2 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
3 Tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp sea salt
8 cups filtered water
2 broccoli crowns, chopped some
broccoli stems, peeled and chopped

1. Cook the rice. Set aside.

2. Make cheesy sauce by combining Cheesy Sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor. Set aside.
