1. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain and set aside.

2. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the broth to a boil. Add the rinsed rice, reduce the heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid.

3. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until well combined to form a roux.

4. Slowly pour in the milk while whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens.

5. Reduce the heat to low and add the cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy. See the link below and learn how to make brown rice.
